Sanovation: CatchMyPain to Launch Pain Diary App
Aug 19, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The new pain diary app CatchMyPain promises to put an end to the odyssey of examinations and treatments while long term relief becomes a hope rather than an expectation this odyssey, according to a release from Sanovation.
According to a release, CatchMyPain allows the tracking of chronic pain problems by using detailed and colorful pain drawings among other instruments. The diary helps patients to explain their pain problem and its course to care providers. However, the biggest benefit of CatchMyPain lies in the creation of a pain database which enables patients and care providers to learn from similar patients.
Algorithms identify clusters of similar patients based on the anonymous pain diaries. E.g. one cluster might contain all back pain patients having a burning and pulsating pain which appears at night but not during the day. The analysis of such a cluster will allow conclusions about the most probable diagnoses and the most promising treatments.
Care providers might know the medical theory about chronic pain but only patients know what it really means to live with chronic pain on a daily basis. Therefore patients will soon be able to exchange best practices with each other.
The pain diary functionality is already available. CatchMyPain can be downloaded as an app for the iPhone, iPad and Android tablets. In addition it is accessible at CatchMyPain.com by using a desktop browser (Safari and Chrome). All apps are available in English, Spanish, German and French.
