IPHONE APP SHOWCASED BY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH
A mobile app, developed by Indigo in collaboration with the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases NHS Foundation Trust and Northern CFS/ME Clinical Network, is to be showcased at an event at the Department for Health in London.
ActiveME©, which assists patients with CFS/ME to track energy levels, was chosen from over 500 entries to a Department of Health project called ‘Maps and Apps’.
The mobile app, which is currently at test stage, helps patients plan their activities to achieve their baseline and then safely increase levels of activity. Features include four different activity grades, which patients can plot on a daily calendar that can then be emailed as a pdf to their healthcare practitioner. It is hoped ActiveME© will be launched by the end of 2011.
Andrew Graney, project director at Indigo said: “One of the features of this condition is the ‘boom and bust’ energy cycle. In order to track these cycles, activity record charts are used to help patients and practitioners work together to assess energy patterns and set safe and realistic achievement goals. This mobile app has been developed to make this process easy for both patients and practitioners and we’re delighted to be chosen for this event, which showcases the latest health app developments.”
