Yelp For Doctors Reviews The Best And Worst Treatments
Designed to give doctors access to a database of knowledge, SharePractice is a free platform where physicians can share their knowledge and experience, as well as comment and consult about different treatments.
SharePractice was co-founded by Dr. Andrew Brandeis who is the current CEO. When he was in medical school, he and another student shared a Dropbox account where they stored stuff they learned from their teachers. Even after he graduated and started practicing medicine, he still referred to that account. In addition, he kept in touch with mentors for advice. He realized that there should be a better way to share information among doctors. He got the idea for SharePractice from using Yelp.
Dr. Brandeis founded the company with Dr. Benoit Carrier. They came out with the app late last year and to date there are over 5,000 health care professionals using SharePractice. The platform contains about 3,500 crowdsourced treatments, which includes non-FDA approved treatments. According to a post on Co.Exist, the company plans to add all FDA-approved treatment for them in the next few weeks.
SharePractice is currently available for the iPhone, but the company is working on the web version and a version for Android.

Michiel Cornelissen’s 3D-Printed ZooM Lampshade Expands from a Small Build Envelope
3D-print-happy designer Michiel Cornelissen is at it again. To create his clever ZooM lampshade, Cornelissen has adopted the trick we first saw Sklyar Tibbits messing around with, where you print something small and made out of interlocking pieces that can then be stretched out to occupy a greater volume. In this case, gravity does the work for you.
Created as a programmable object in generative design software, ZooM has a structure created from hundreds of repeating elements that together form a series of interlocking spirals.
3-d printing allows this pentagonal lampshade to be manufactured flat and completely assembled; folded out, it’s flexible like a textile, while maintaining its form like a rigid product. The semi-transparent structure shields the bulb’s glare, while transmitting light efficiently.
Cornelissen is selling them in two sizes, a 20-cm and 28-cm version. And as cool as it looks in blue, at press time it was only available in black or white.
