Parents build app that helps caregivers of patients with cystic fibrosis

Patricia Pereira 于 2015-07-06 22:30 分享

About the solution

The app allows the user to set the total number of positions on the patient’s body where the treatment must occur, the number of minutes that the tapping action must be performed per position and a time period for resting in between each position. An alert displays on the phone to let the user know when it’s time to change positions, which can also be customizable.

To engage the child, animal sounds and graphics with a celebration screen appears that incorporates the patient’s name when a treatment is complete.

The timer itself is a graphical representation of the countdown instead of just a clock, and continues to operate even when the phone screen automatically locks. Daily reminders can also be set to remind the parent when it’s time for their child’s treatment.

The app is free and can be easily downloaded from the App Store.

关于发明者

Jason Phipps and his wife Meaghan, from USA, whose son was born with Cystic Fibrosis, perform a chest PT procedure every day to clear breathing pathways. This entails tapping ten areas around their son’s chest, back and lung regions for three minutes each to help break up any mucus. As this became increasingly difficult to keep track of the time consistently, while holding their son upright and tapping his chest, Phipps developed an app that included countdowns, reminders and alarms to help with this process.
