For José Luis Marina, Founder of the company Taniwa, Mememtum is much more than just his star product. The app, designed in 2013 to help with early detection of neurological disorders, replicates the tests that neurologists conduct on patients during consultations. José Luis is keen to point out that all you need to use the app is a smartphone. “Android and the whole Android ecosystem give you the freedom to do whatever you want. In our case, it enables us to use the device’s sensors to take health readings.” José Luis also likes Android because he says the devices are more affordable and therefore accessible to more people. Android has led to a 60% increase in the company’s revenue due to the huge demand for software for this operating system from third parties: “Since we started selling our services using Android, orders have been flooding in. Plus it’s flexible and allows us to adopt a global approach, meaning that we don’t have to worry about the fragmented nature of the industry.” So far, Mememtum has been tested by more than 1,000 patients and has been endorsed by two prominent neurologists. “It should help hospitals to reduce diagnosis lead times and pharmaceutical companies to identify market niches and launch new products faster.” With that in mind, José Luis has set his sights on becoming the market leader in smartphone-based neurological health monitoring in the near future.
