Track Code2013-029

Short Description

Few self-management interventions of any type have been developed and empirically supported for youth with spina bifida. While medical management applications exist for other chronic medical conditions, none are sufficient for the complex spina bifida medical regimen. Researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital have developed a smartphone app that will improve the ability of youth with spina bifida to manage, initiate, and complete the complex self-care tasks associated with spina bifida. In the future, the app could be generalized to other populations of youth with complex medical conditions, such as spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, etc.
