The mobile app reminds users to take photos of specific moles regularly to look for changes over time. The skin mapping feature detects new moles or spots in large areas.
Over 3 million people in the US alone are diagnosed with skin cancer each year. When caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable. However, it becomes more difficult to treat if left to progress and spread. Detecting skin cancer involves looking for changes in moles over time which is not always easy to notice, especially for people with many moles.
The Miiskin mobile app helps users monitor changes by providing a way for them to store and compare photos of their moles over time. Users can take close-ups of specific moles, and wide-area photos to easily detect if a new mole develops.
The app reminds users when it is time to take new photos and check for changes. Side-by-side comparisons of images allow users to see at a glance if the mole has changed colour or shape and automatic skin mapping detects new spots. With augmented reality, the automatic imaging feature allows an individual to take pictures without needing someone else. The app doesn’t seek to diagnose skin moles like SkinVision but serves primarily as a monitoring tool.
Miiskin makes it easy for patients to share photos with their doctor to discuss changes. Photos are securely backed up and protected with a 4-digit pin. Miiskin is doctor-recommended and approved by the NHS app library.
