Connecting Your Healthkit
When you live with chronic pain, every aspect of life impacts pain one way or the other. With the modern wearable technologies, tracking one’s physical activity level in real time, sleep patterns, heart rate etc. has become effortless and automatic. Finding correlations between the experienced pain level and the hard data collected by these wearable devices is not only useful to manage one’s life with less pain but also help physicians to prescribe the right care and treatment, backed by the real data.
Painscale allows easy integration with devices like Fitbit, Samsung health or any other device that already pushes data to Google Fit (on Android) or Apple Healthkit (on iOS) to enable users to seamlessly access their wearable data and present them in the context of pain logs.
