At what cost, regulation?

The use of mobile computing devices holds much promise for improving disease treatment and quality of medical care.  It would be a shame to watch the cost of these devices exponentially rise because of demands of overbearing regulation.

Anyone have any experience with the new wrist bands that monitor your activity?  It seems like a good way to help improve your activity and sleep cycles with feedback.  I hope the FDA will not decide to regulate these.

It does seem that the US government likes to stand in the way of progress.  If medical manufacturers go to Europe or Asia because they can get their devices approved quicker, than the FDA needs to change.  It sounds like they want to, but I would be surprised if they really do.

thanx Rick...there is an app to monitor your skin for cancerous spots (sounds useful, I was wondering whether to use it), would that be example of FDA regulated app as it requires some decent accuracy in diagnosis?...one could argue that if the software alerts you would go to dermatogolist anyways so there is no really a downside...Kris

How do you think the FDA is doing keeping pace with the rise of mobile health?

How does it compare with regulators in Europe and Asia?
