StrokeActive is a purpose-driven tech startup, aiming to transform the recovery of stroke patients across the world through an online application and iOS mobile app that can be used by patients, family members, carers, and practitioners to manage the vital first few weeks of recovery following a stroke.
We were initially commissioned to build an iOS iPad app to act as an information resource and practitioner directory for carers of stroke patients. During the development of the app, the full potential for transformation of the stroke recovery process became clear, and the project became one of connection between practitioners and stroke patients and their carers.
The first few weeks following a stroke are critical, and the app aims to provide a framework for support that allows those first weeks to be utilised to their fullest potential to ensure the greatest chance of a complete recovery.
The app provides task setting and monitoring, video recording of daily therapeutic practices, and messaging between all of the practitioners caring for the patient, as well as a directory of health care professionals.
The primary interface for patients and carers was developed in the form of an iOS mobile app for the iPad. The application was also developed as a Progressive Web App for Health Care Professionals, to enable them to use a desktop version in addition to the iPad.
