In the DTU Magazine DYNAMO November 2008 issue no. 15 the theme is Life Sciences. The magazine has an article (in danish) about a mobile application enabling efficient remote treatment of ulcer patients.
As a result of the mobile application the number of amputations dropped by almost a quarter, treatment is better and faster, and the local authorities are saving money. The initial mobile application prototype was developed by a student at DTU Informatics during a course in mobile application development.
At the TechFest 2008 at Microsoft Developer Center Copenhagen, my colleague Michael Kai Petersen and I won an award in the category “Best University Project” with the MuZeeker mobile application.
“Thanks to remote treatment via cell phones, the number of amputations in ulcer patients has dropped by almost a quarter at South Jutland Hospital. Meanwhile, the local authorities are saving money, and treatment is faster”
DTU Avisen no.7 2008 has an article (Section 1, p.14 and Section 2, p.2) about this amazing mobile application, which was done by Mads Vium Asbjørn.

Mads did his master’s thesis project on Secure integration of mobile phones and payment cards with focus on VoIP in milab.
Rafe Blandford and Ewan Spence from All About Symbian have made a review of the ‘Top Widgets For Your Consideration’. Our MuZeeker widget is among the ones that they mention:
“Short of having a great big splash graphic that says “Don’t Panic”, MuZeeker is the closest you’ll get to the Hitch-Hikers Guide To Music. A search engine for music, which presents its information in a collapsed tree of information to be expanded out and then passed links to find out more, typically via Wikipedia and YouTube.”
Berlingske has an article (in danish) about our activities at the Roskilde Festival in collaboration with Lancaster University and Nokia. It discusses specifically our experiments with LocoMash. Nyhedsavisen has another article (in danish) describing the project.
The danish science portal videnskab.dk has two articles (in danish) about our research activities at the Roskilde Festival together with Lancaster University and Forum Nokia:
At the S60 Summit in Barcelona we presented the MuZeeker Widget (for the S60 platform). All About Symbian have an article and a Podcast about ‘The wonderful (widgetised) world of Web Run-Time (WRT)’ that both mention our MuZeeker Widget.
