Intuitive and Medically-Relevant Description Approach
Manage My Pain™ leverages and modified version of the LOCATES methodology to describe pain. This approach is intuitive and easy-to-understand for those suffering from chronic pain. Just as important, however, it uses the right terminology for care-givers and medical professionals to better evaluate and assess the pain.
Pre-Populated Yet Customizable Descriptors
Each section already contains a pre-populated list based on medical journals of common characteristics from chronic pain conditions. There is a free-text Notes section to capture anything else you wish to record. However, each section provides you with the ability to add your own values, and hide ones you no longer wish to display. You can truly make the app personalized for your particular situation!
Touch-based entry in 30 seconds
The entry screen was designed to minimize the amount of effort required to record your pain, with the ultimate goal of complete entry within 30 seconds. Most sections use simple checkboxes - severity is selected using color-coded slider, and time and date is set using Android's built-in features.
