Do you use mHealth products safely?

As the European Commission recently described in its Green Paper: mobile health, also called mHealth, has great potential. It allows you as a consumer to assess your own health status indicators, e.g. by measuring your heart rate through a skin sensor and your mobile phone. Interpreting the figures you get can be tough and, therefore, when your phone warns you about abnormal patterns, it should advise you to consult your physician as well.
