Usability evaluation of a self-management mobile application for individuals with a mild traumatic brain injury
Article by Acquired Brain Injury Researchers
Explore the MyBrainPacer™ app study, demonstrating high user satisfaction for those with mild traumatic brain injuries. Discover how this innovative mobile health solution could improve symptom management and rehabilitation for those affected.
Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) are common and may result in persisting symptoms. Mobile health (mHealth) applications enhance treatment access and rehabilitation. However, there is limited evidence to support mHealth applications for individuals with an mTBI. The primary purpose of this study was to evaluate user experiences and perceptions of the Parkwood Pacing and Planning™ application, an mHealth application developed to help individuals manage their symptoms following an mTBI. The secondary purpose of this study was to identify strategies to improve the application. This study was conducted as part of the development process for this application.
