STORY


[Scorri per la versione in Italiano]

I am implementing a mobile app to help people with RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome), a highly disabling pathology for which there are only symptomatic (and relatively effective) treatments.

My girlfriend has been suffering from it for a long time and is treated with Mirapexin: over time we have noticed a correlation between physical activities, mental status, diet and symptoms so we tried to monitor her situation and draw conclusions.

As a software developer, I thought an app could help this process.

Through this app you can monitor your activities and your physical and mental status, relate them and develop charts that propose a causal relationship between events based on statistical data.

You can then enter your activities (possibly connecting via wearable devices like Fitband and similar ones) and the symptoms of the day, so as to verify which of the actions, foods, drugs or events may be relevant to the problem.

 By inserting the activities in a database (private and encrypted, residing locally on the user's device) it will be possible to create a data archive to be related and processed.  It will be possible to check if some activities, foods or drugs can benefit or otherwise harm, limiting or increasing the symptoms.

Obviously, the analysis of data is to be entrusted only and exclusively to a specialized doctor and the developer assumes no liability whatsoever arising from incorrect deductions on the basis of the statistical data provided. Each user is responsible for their data entered and must evaluate a possible therapy with his doctor avoiding to draw incorrect conclusions on the basis of the statistical data proposed by the graphs themselves.

Within the app there will be a community where you can anonymously exchange (if you want) your data to interpolate causal links with others: you could find, i.e., that a person of the same sex, height and weight, if she does physical activity in the afternoon and takes magnesium in an amount X, she tends to limit the symptoms.

On the other hand, others may find in some foods, such as peanuts, a triggering source of the problem.

There will also be a news section to stay up to date on the topic and other features to be defined once the first version has been released.

The app will be available for Android and for iOS.

A considerable amount of time and work is required for the development of this app: I am a software developer and I can manage all aspects of development but I need funds to be able to devote full time.

The development time of such an app is estimated in about a year, considering design, production, beta testing, staging, deploy.

The financial support for the development of the first version of the app is essential for the project to be followed continuously and effectively.

All supporters will be cited in the app's credits.

[Sinossi in Italiano]

Sto realizzando una applicazione che aiuti le persone affette da RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome), una patologia altamente invalidante per la quale esistono solo cure sintomatiche (relativamente efficaci).   

La mia ragazza ne soffre da tempo e si cura tramite Mirapexin: nel tempo abbiamo notato una correlazione tra attività fisiche, status mentale ed alimentazione quindi abbiamo provato a monitorare la sua situazione e trarne delle conclusioni. 

Come sviluppatore software, ho pensato che un'app potesse aiutare questo lavoro.

Tramite quest'app sarà possibile monitorare le proprie attività ed il proprio status fisico e mentale, mettendoli in relazione e sviluppando dei grafici che propongano una relazione causale tra eventi basata sui dati statistici.

Sarà possibile quindi inserire le proprie attività (eventualmente collegandosi tramite dispositivi wearable come Fitband e affini) ed i sintomi della giornata, in modo tale da verificare quale delle azioni, alimenti, farmaci o eventi possa essere rilevante ai fini del problema.  

Inserendo le attività in un database (privato e crittografato, risiedente in locale sul dispositivo dell'utente) sarà possibile realizzare un archivio dati da relazionare ed elaborare.   

Sarà possibile così verificare se alcune attività, alimenti o farmaci possano giovare o al contrario nuocere, limitando o aumentando i sintomi.

Ovviamente l'analisi dei dati è da affidare solo ed unicamente ad un medico e lo sviluppatore non si assume alcun tipo di responsabilità derivante da deduzioni errate sulla base dei dati statistici forniti. Ogni utente è responsabile dei propri dati inseriti e deve valutare una eventuale terapia con il suo medico evitando di trarre conclusioni errate sulla base dei dati statistici proposti dai grafici stessi.

All'interno dell'app sarà presente una community dove poter scambiare (se lo si vuole) dati in maniera anonima per interpolare nessi causali con altri: si potrebbe scoprire, a titolo puramente esemplificativo, che una persona dello stesso sesso, altezza e peso, qualora svolga attività fisica pomeridiana ed assuma magnesio in una quantità X, tenda a limitare la sintomatologia.

D'altro canto, altri potrebbero scoprire in alcuni alimenti, come le arachidi, una fonte scatenante del problema. 

Sarà inoltre presente una sezione news per restare sempre aggiornato sul tema ed altre funzionalità da definire una volta rilasciata la prima versione. 

L'app sarà disponibile per Android e per iOS. 

Per lo sviluppo di questa app è necessaria una dose notevole di tempo e di lavoro: sono uno sviluppatore software e posso gestire tutti gli aspetti dello sviluppo ma ho bisogno di fondi per potermici dedicare a tempo pieno. 

Il tempo di sviluppo di una app del genere è di circa un anno, considerando progettazione, produzione, beta testing, staging, deploy.

Il sostegno finanziario per lo sviluppo della prima versione dell'app è fondamentale perché il progetto venga seguito in maniera continuativa ed efficace. 

Tutti i sostenitori verranno citati nei credits dell'app.

Today I added an important feature to RLS App, the eye color chooser into the profile section. User will be able to choose his eyes color, an important genetic mark, from the standard Martin–Schultz scale.

If the user has heterochromia iridis (the difference in coloration of the iris) can choose different colors for the left and the right eye.

The feature will be pushed on demo (already freely testable at https://rlsapp.allartsoftworks.com/ choosing "APP" from the menu) with a lot of improvements and bugfixes... ASAP :)
