Check out the YogiTherapy App! – A Collaboration between the University Hospital and the MaD Lab
We are very happy to announce that the app YogiTherapy was just published in the Google Play Store and Apple Store in English and German. YogiTherapy is an e-health application tailored to patients with ankylosing spondylitis, which is a systemic rheumatic disease affecting the spinal column and adjacent joints. The app promotes flexible exercising in a home-based environment by providing yoga videos. It furthermore enables self-monitoring using established questionnaires to improve the quality of coordination of care between patients and physicians.
The app was initiated by Dr. Harriet Morf of the Department of Internal Medicine 3 of the University Hospital Erlangen. A first prototype was developed in a collaborative project in the InnoLab of the MaD Lab and resulted in a joint journal paper. Recently, we refined the app and finally published it to make it available to patients.
