If you would like to know what your orthopedic colleagues are talking about in case of a high energetic trauma patient who has several fractures, this app may be useful for you. OrthoMind contains 100 orthopedic scores and classification systems, and is based on the “Top AppNeuroMind.


OrthoMind is available for the iPhone and iPad, and for Android.

News from the societies

Pretty neat… There is no release date planned at the moment, but we’ll keep you posted on the progress!

Android update for SNI Mobile available!

The update for SNI Mobile (version 1.1) is now available as a free download from the Android Market!

The deprecated Forum category has been replaced by the new Societies category. Updates for iPhone and iPad have been submitted to the App Store, and are expected to be available within 1 week.

Here are some Android screenshots:

Update for SNI Mobile coming up!

The SNI Mobile application will soon be updated to fit the new menu of our website. The Forum entry will disappear, and the new Societies entry will be prominently visible. The underlying structure of the Societies menu has been updated to go along well with the new app.

Here are some screenshots of what the new iPhone version will look like (click for large version):

Online collaboration in Neurosurgery 2.0

This presentation has been given by Jonathan Lau on the Medicine 2.0 conference in Maastricht, The Netherlands. It concerns the online collaboration with Pieter Kubben on the NeuroMind application.

Note: To view this in full-screen, click the Menu button below, and then View Fullscreen; press Esc to exit full-screen mode. To view this presentation on a mobile device, click the link below.

NeuroMind layout question

NeuroMind is currently the #1 ranked iPhone app for neurosurgery in the App Store, and is also available for Android and soon for iPad. A web interface is under development.

Now we would like your feedback on the new layout. Take a look at the screenshots below: example 1 on the left, and example 2 on the right. For a larger image, click the small version shown here.

As you see, example 1 (left image) first mentions the score and then the corresponding criteria. Example 2 (right image) does the opposite: it first mentions the criteria, and then what score needs to be assigned to those.

Let us know what layout you prefer, and -if you like- for what reasons. This will help to improve the app for future upgrades.

iPad app available, iPhone & Android app updated

SNI Mobile apps banner

You may already know it from your mail or your colleagues, but our mobile app trilogy is now complete with the SNI Mobile for iPad app. It is available in the App Store as a free download.

Our apps for iPhone and Android have been updated. For iPhone this was necessary because MedKnow -the company that publishes our articles- updated the RSS feed to display the articles in reverse chronological order. In the first version of the iPhone app we did this manually, which was not necessary anymore (actually, what you got now was a double reverse).

For Android there was an issue that the app sometimes kept displaying the startup screen without actually entering the app itself. This should be solved now.

You may expect a minor update for the iPad app soon, which corrects an issue that happens when you start the app in landscape mode (which means that you hold your iPad “horizontally”). The home menu appears to start in portrait orientation (“vertically”) no matter in what direction you hold the device. You can now solve the issue by rotating the device from landscape to portrait and back. A final fix is expected within a few weeks.

For those who use other mobile device, you can visit our homepage and you’ll be referred to the new mobile section of the articles.

We are looking forward to welcome you as a visitor of our site, from your desk or “on-the-go”!

SNI Mobile for Android available

We are proud to announce that our Android version of “SNI Mobile” is now available for download in the Android Market! You can preview the app on Cyrket. To download, visit the Android Market on your handheld device and search for “sni mobile”. Needless to say, it’s completely free.

Further we updated our iPhone app to fit the updated RSS feed. It is now available for download from the App Store.

Last, our iPad application has been submitted to the App Store and we hope to get it approved within 1-2 weeks. We’ll let you know about that!

To finish, here are some Android screenshots:

Improvements for social networks and apps

Our RSS feed has been improved… an important improvement! For technical reasons we could not use it to update our social networks. Now we can! This means that as soon as new articles appear on the website, you will be noticed automatically on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Buzz. Until now we had to update those networks manually. The new method is faster!
