Review:

“Ever wished that, just for a day, your friends and family could understand what it’s like to have Crohn’s or Colitis?

Crohn’s & Colitis UK have teamed up with pharmaceutical company Takeda UK to create In My Shoes: 24 Hours with Crohn’s or Colitis - an immersive app that will allow anyone to experience first-hand what it’s like to have Crohn’s or Colitis.

From depleting energy levels to managing pain, from rushing to the toilet to juggling work and a social life, the app will allow friends, family and anyone you want, to see first-hand how the condition can affect every part of your body, and every aspect of your life.

Don’t worry - after 24 hours they can return to their normal lives. But they’ll do so with a deeper understanding and appreciation of what you have to go through every day.

In My Shoes: 24 hours with Crohn’s or Colitis is a simulation experience to give the user an insight into the challenges faced by people living with these conditions. Crohn’s and Colitis affect people in many different ways, so the app aims to give a broad overview of the key symptoms and impact on daily living.

“It was thought provoking. I live with someone who has Colitis and will have more empathy and awareness now, especially about the associated joint pain and fatigue. A useful tool that is easy to use, and certainly makes you think.”
