A new way to manage your pain by tracking it

post-image
Pain ROADMAP is a mobile platform made up of an app for patients with chronic pain and a portal for clinicians. Using the app, you can keep a log of each activity you do throughout the day, your pain levels as you do those activities, what pain medication you take and when. You also wear a device around your waist, which keeps track of when you are moving and resting. Armed with this detailed information, clinicians can help you work out how to better pace your activities through the day to reduce the frequency of intense periods of pain. By using ROADMAP five out of seven people who relied on take-as-needed pain medication were able to stop taking it according to a study. Opioid medication by those in the study also decreased by 20 per cent on average. https://blog.csiro.au/managing-chronic-pain-in-more-mobile-ways/
