One in four children and young people worldwide experience chronic pain. Happyr Health, co founded by Nicola Filzmoser, is a headache and migraine management app that uses storytelling and gaming to help manage chronic pain in children and young people.
“As an innovation showcase at the MedTech Summit, we are able to present Happyr Health’s efforts in supporting teens with chronic pain through personalised, digital tools.”
The technology involved in healthcare is increasingly significant because, in an age where lockdown and social distancing are being ‘normalised’, actual medical treatments are the last port of call – the main goal is to ensure that conditions are managed as successfully as possible from home.
‘The wound reveals the cure’, as the Greek maxim states, which meant that as adults, Nicola and Cornelius applied their experience – of isolation, of worry – to developing a child-friendly way for younger migraine sufferers to connect with the outside world.
Watch our co-founder Nicola pitch at the Super Connect Top AI For Good Pitches.
Together we can show the world that a happyr life with chronic pain is possible.
