Painscale App

Connecting Google Fit


Every aspect of life is impacted by chronic pain; however, with modern technology, tracking physical activity levels, sleep patterns, heart rate, etc., has become beneficial in reducing chronic pain. Finding correlations between pain levels and data collected by wearable devices is useful in managing life with less pain and helping health care providers prescribe the most appropriate treatment plans.

PainScale allows easy integration with certain devices, such as Fitbit, Samsung health, or other devices that push data to Google Fit (on Android) or Apple Healthkit (on iOS). This enables users to seamlessly access wearable data and present it in the context of pain logs. In this series of articles, we will explain the steps needed to connect with one of these devices.

To access Google Fit, access your “Profile” page through the “Person” icon in the top left corner of the home page.

When the “Health Profile” page is accessed, the “Gear” or “Settings” icon will appear in the top right corner. All app configurations are typically available in this section.

On the “Settings” page, click on “Connect” beside Google Fit.

After selecting “connect,” “disconnect” will appear once the Google Fit has been successfully enabled

After connecting Google Fit and PainScale App, the wearable data will begin appearing inside the app immediately.
