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, allowing them 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.
