Future condition management products
Pelvic health and rheumatoid arthritis are just the starting point for us. There are a lot more conditions (and a lot more people out there) that could benefit from condition-tracking apps that make managing their condition(s) easier.
Here are some of our products that are currently in development.
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer for both men and women in the UK and has the highest morbidity rate of all the cancer types.
Surgery has the best cure rates for lung cancer but is only offered to patients who are fit enough to undergo surgery and the recovery process. Pre-habilitation physiotherapy programmes have proven to significantly help prepare patients for a successful surgery and recovery.
However, there are number of constraints to providing these services:
- Pre-hab isn’t available in all clinics increasing patient travel
- Low patient adherence to exercise programmes between appointments
- Large portion of appointments spent educating and motivating patients

Living With Lung Cancer can help overcome these challenges by supporting patients with a pre-hab exercise programme app that’s clinically monitored, enabling clinics to provide a cost effective service.
Living With Lung Cancer will feature 8 exercises, progress tracking, BORG breathlessness score with blue-tooth accelerometer connection.
Oesophageal cancer is the fourth largest cause of cancer death in the UK. It has one of the highest death rates of any cancer.
London Cancer, part of the UCLH Cancer Collaborative, has developed a pathway that has shown better results where surgery is performed by a specialist centre at UCL Hospital with supportive care delivered by local hospitals. However, joining up patient care across multiple sites in this new pathway has proven difficult, causing confusion and missed appointments.
It also impacts Cancer Nurse Specialists ability to do their job because more of their time is spent coordinating hospitals and less time is spent supporting patients’ physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs – leading to a worse patient experience.

Living With Oesophageal Cancer can help overcome these challenges by supporting patients with a personalised, reliable and accurate source of information to guide them through their care pathway – all in an easy to digest format which they can access in the comfort of their own home. Also, enabling oesophageal cancer healthcare staff to monitor patient progress, update patients treatments, share information, and improve care.
Living With Oesophageal Cancer will feature educational information about disease and treatment options, provide access to additional forms of support for their physical, emotional, spiritual and social well being.
