Mavro Inc. develops mobile apps with a mission to bring products to the medical market that are beautifully designed, simple to use and effective. In the spirit of this mission, their Emergency Medical Spanish Guide (EMSG) iOS app bridges the gap between Spanish language patients and their healthcare providers during emergency situations.
iMedical Apps, a leading physician publication on mobile medicine, has recently posted a review praising the utility of the EMSG in emergency situations. The app uses audio accompaniment and written phrases to facilitate communication between Spanish-speaking patients and non-Spanish speaking healthcare providers within a wide range of medicinal topics.
Other usability features that iMedical Apps highlights are that each topic is associated with it's own color, making topics easily decipherable on a small screen, and useful functionality that comes with a paid subscription, such as the ability to bookmark phrases and use flashcards.
