CatchMyPain - Pain Diary

CatchMyPain - Pain Diary
developed by Sanovation AG; Software Evolution and Architecture Lab (SEAL) Gruppe, Instituts für Informatik, Universität Zürich


Improving communicationSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English / French / German / Spanish

Cost: Free. Various in app purchases
A diary of pain felt by the user, to help explain the pain to doctors.
"An app that acts as a pain diary. I've found it to be incredibly useful in tracking possible cycles, and in remembering important days of pain (and possible causes). I'm finding it to be an invaluable resource. You can rate your pain, do colour-coded mapping on a human form to mark out where your pain is, and its severity, and detail specific things going on. They've also included a way now to send that information to your physician(s), if you so choose. When you've completed entries, it will chart them, so you are able to detect, for example, if a new medication is helping or not, or if a stressful event caused more damage than you would hope."

It is also a journal, in which the user can log the severity of the pain, the location of the pain, the type of the pain. The app has charting, a report-writing facility, and allows printout and email. ” Fibromyalgia Association (FMA) UK | PatientView survey, July-August 2012

Manage My Pain Lite

Manage My Pain Lite
developed by ManagingLife


Support to deal with symptoms/disabilitiesSelf-monitoringTrackersInformation

English

Cost: Free, Pro version £2.99 [approximately €4.23, $4.66]
Allows pain to be recorded, tracked and analysed.
“My number one, cream of the crop app for chronic pain sufferers is Manage My Pain. The app is basically a record-keeping tool for those in chronic pain, with free hosting of records on their servers to avoid losing data if your phone decides to throw a wobbler. I have used it for around 7 months now. At first, I had the free ‘Lite’ version, which became so handy that I needed up upgrade to the ‘Pro’ to allow myself the space for more records. Both levels of this app requires an account, but it is easily set up, and totally free to do. I found it very easy and uncomplicated to upgrade from Lite to Pro. The Pro version allows you to keep unlimited records of your pain, whereas the Lite version allows you ten at a time – which is do-able for the lighter user, or for someone who can really make the effort to blend reports a bit, to get the picture they need. I found it easier just to pay the extra to get the Pro version, and I’ve certainly got my money’s worth out of it. I would definitely recommend giving the free version a try, and seeing if it suits you. Sometimes, just being able to look at the timeline of results, and say “Well, x is obviously working”, helps you see the bigger picture of your pain when you’re struggling. Or if your pain is clearly increasing, it’s a visual record to show people who should be helping bring that level down – not just a tearful person turning up in A&E without ‘backup’ (as I have done). If I used this app to its full potential, and had a go with the reports section, I really think it could push my treatment forward, too.” Rise Above Pain blog, UK | http://bitly.com/12xNEVj

SmallTalk Pain Scale

SmallTalk Pain Scale
developed by Lingraphicare America Inc, USA


Improving communicationSupport to deal with symptoms/disabilities

English

Cost: Free

Allows people who cannot speak (particularly people with aphasia, apraxia, or dysarthria) to communicate amount and type of pain felt to other people (including caregivers, family members, and healthcare professionals).

“The advantages: the app offers the user a pain scale with words and faces for them to select their pain level. It has voice output, allowing the user to speak this aloud, as well as a selection of words to describe the pain. The disadvantages: the vocabulary in the app is not customisable at all, and is quite limiting.” Patient group specialising in communication disability, Australia | PatientView survey, July-August 2012
