Pain't App selected in the top 200 projects from around the world in the category Intelligent Interaction.

A Self-Expression app for an efficient diagnosis. Pain't is an app that allows patients to document and describe their symptoms using more than just words. With the app, patients can illustrate their pain in real time by scribbling on or marking relevant areas on a silhouette of a human body. This app allows patients to specify the duration and intensity of their symptoms. 

An aggregation of these entries helps patients create their own "PainScape," which shows where their pain is manifesting. The app provides a summary of the patient's predominant and minute pain areas, making it easier for doctors to understand the patient's experience. The PainScape not only helps the patient effectively communicate their pain to others; it also helps the patient understand their own pain. The concept and design of this digital product thoroughly relied on insights provided by various stakeholders, including female patients, healthcare providers, medical students, and therapists.
