Summary

Intended to help people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) track and monitor their daily activity levels. A user picks from four activity grades, and can then record each personal activity (in terms of energy level) on a daily calendar and graph. The app analyses patterns in personal energy levels. Notes can be added in an ‘Energy diary’. Activity patterns can be reviewed, and standards set. Allows the user to develop a daily baseline of energy levels, suitable for increasing in regular steps. Weekly charts can be emailed in PDF (perhaps to a doctor, or to a carer).

Reviews

Reviewer: Northern CFS Clinical Network, UK
Review: “The app is a fantastic way for people to feel in control in managing their condition. Having the app on their phone makes their charts and monitoring information more portable and accessible—which, we hope, will encourage more meticulous use of this self-monitoring tool. The information recorded can then be discussed with their clinical teams, and the data used to inform treatment plans. This makes each patient’s treatment highly individualised, and patients can really feel that they are taking charge of their care.”

Review: “The app has a very easy-to-use interface. At the end of the day, you have a chart that shows your activity intensity throughout that day. You can email daily or weekly reports to your own email address, or someone else’s (although that is not recommended for security reasons). However, the reports only provide a simple line graph of the high energy activity you have entered. Your data on sleep, deep rest, and low energy time is not shown in the graph report. Security for your data is basic. You can set a password to protect the data, and all your data stays on your phone. It is not synced to a server or cloud. While this is good for security, it does mean that if you lose your phone, you will also lose your data. There are no backups. One difficulty I have with this app is the definition of activity levels, which are just not sensitive enough in my opinion. Overall, I think ‘ActiveME’ is a good first attempt at an app to help with pacing.”
