Mayo Clinic launches mobile app company, meditation app

By Kelley Luckstein

Mayo Clinic is partnering with DoApps Inc. to form a new company that will develop and sell smart phone apps based on Mayo research.


Last week, mRemedy launched its first app called Mayo Clinic Meditation for Apple’s iPhone and iTouch, a program created by Dr. Amit Sood, a Mayo professor, to teach people breathing and relaxation techniques.


The company has already sold 200 apps, each priced at $4.99 on  iTunes. mRemedy will help distribute Mayo’s products and services well beyond its hospitals, not to mention generate revenue by tapping a booming market for smart phone apps, said Kathy Anderson, a spokeswoman for Mayo’s Office of Intellectual Property.
