DermaMan: A dermatology calculator for PDAs

I have recently made a simple application to bring basic dermatology related calculations to hand held devices in Java. It includes modules for frequently used dermatological calculations like PASI, MASI, SCORAD and for PUVA and Botox (R) related calculations.

DermaMan is a freeware which can be downloaded from if you are accessing from a PC and if you are accessing from your hand held device for over-the-air installation. All modules are packaged as a single JAR file. Specific instructions for installation depend on your device and are usually available from the manufacturer’s user-guide. General instructions are available from the web pages mentioned above.

A more detailed description of the software is in print in the ‘Resident’s corner’ section of IJDVL, March-2008 issue. Please read the disclaimer before you download the software. Use this thread for support, bug report and feature requests.

About Me

As a Dermatologist and Informatician my research mainly involves application of bioinformatics techniques and tools in dermatological conditions. However my research interests are varied and I have publications in areas ranging from artificial intelligence, sequence analysis, systems biology, ontology development, microarray analysis, immunology, computational biology and clinical dermatology. I am also interested in eHealth, Health Informatics and Health Policy.
