Chronic pain sufferers have a new ally when it comes to answering the question: “On a scale of zero to 10, how much does it hurt?”
GeoPain, a mobile pain tracking app, launched to the public last month from MoxyTech, a University of Michigan startup. It gives users a 3D image of the body to zero in on the pain—its location and intensity—and brings a new tool to precision health.
It’s a clinically proven solution for tracking, analyzing and communicating the details lost with existing pain assessment methods. It allows patients to quickly “paint” their pain on anatomically accurate 3D models using a phone or tablet.
