The Parkwood Planning & Pacing Points App is an interactive electronic version of the planning and pacing points system currently being implemented in the ABI Outpatient program at Parkwood Institute.
This program is being adapted into a smartphone app to reach out to individuals in the community experiencing persistent symptoms associated with a mild traumatic brain injury. The app will incorporate a daily planner, symptom tracker and a real-time feedback system to help users reduce the frequency of persistent symptoms associated with their injury.
An individualized approach to guiding the user through the points system will be taken with regular assessments of concussion symptomology. Currently, the app is in the development phase involving an iterative process of usability and validation testing with end-users and clinicians.
