Description

WHY DID WE MAKE THIS?
This app was designed by an MD pain specialist and PhD pharmacologist to help users with chronic pain create a comprehensive picture-diary of the different types of pain felt throughout the day. By keeping such a detailed diary, users can now see and better understand what they have been feeling and if the treatments being tried are helping them.

TRACK IT BETTER. TREAT IT BETTER.
Using patent-pending technology, you can now distinctly track, map, and monitor the intensity, pattern, and extent-of-spread of at least 12 different types of pain on your mobile device. We’ve also added a separate tracking system for numbness.

PAIN IS LIFE-CHANGING.
When you are suffering with pain, what you want is to get better again and be able to help your doctor understand what you are feeling.

Tracking your pain is important in treating your pain. When your healthcare team can see exactly how your pain changes over time, trends can emerge that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Pain is a complex sensation that can constantly change with varying intensities, textures, locations, and patterns of spread. This is especially true for individuals who suffer from a severe type of chronic pain called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

Nanolume® makes it easy for you to track, analyze, and map at least 12 distinct types of pain every day. By more completely knowing what types of pain a person is suffering with, such knowledge can be used to improve the basis upon which your diagnosis and treatment can be developed and/or adjusted.

PAIN IS DIFFERENT.
Pain is a subjective (not objective) sensation — it cannot be measured by a medical device. Its assessment relies on the ability of a person to accurately describe and communicate what he or she feels.

This app helps you explain and show to others precisely what you feel every day.

FEATURES.
For each diary entry (pain picture):
• Choose from a list of at least 12 uniquely different pain types; you can even choose multiple types of pain — each one layered separately.
• Select the intensity of each pain type.
• Use your finger or a stylus pen to draw an “outline” around the location where each type of pain is felt. Want to "outline" a smaller area of pain on your face, fingers, or toes? Use our new “DOUBLE-TAP-TO-ZOOM” feature to expand your view.
• The app automatically calculates (estimates) the % body surface area covered (affected) by each (or all) type(s) of pain.
• Open a saved entry (pain picture) and look at the location of each unique pain type (by touching the pain type you want to see) or look at how all the pain types overlap together (by touching "All Layers"). Swipe the picture left or right to review how your pain changes over time.
• Add "Notes" for additional details.
• Miss an entry? Go back and recreate a "pain picture" from the past; then, use the "Calendar" icon to backdate the recreated entry.
• View a summary of your data in "Charts".

INCLUDED APP FUNCTIONS.
• Unlimited Pain Entries. An unlimited number of pain entries can be saved and tracked (data summarized in “Charts”).
• Copy/Edit. Copy or edit-a-copy of a previous pain entry.
• Numbness. Track numbness along with pain entries (data charted separately).
• Custom Pain Types. Allows you to define up to 3 customized pain types.
• Interactive Summary & Animation. After a week or more of data is saved, play an animation showing how “each” of your pain types, or “all” of your pain types, change within any time period you choose by selecting the corresponding start/stop dates.
• Calendar. Touch the "Calendar" icon to backdate any pain-picture you draw to create a record of what you remember feeling from the past.
• Export. Share (email) a CSV file of your data.

DATA STORAGE.
Data is stored on your device and is not collected/stored by Nanolume®, LLC.

Version History

Launched Jan 02, 2018 (about 1 year ago).

Releasing new versions every about 2 months, on average.

Dec 13
2018
(Current)
Version 2.2.3

This version fixes a bug that prevented Nanolume from switching between pain layers of the same type when reviewing past results.

The fix involves a slight change in behavior: Previously, when swiping to move from one report to the next, Nanolume would display the topmost layer of each type of pain. Now, if there are multiple layers of the same type, Nanolume will display All Layers when that report loads. You can then select the layer you want to view.

2018
Version 2.2.2

This version fixes a bug that would cause the oldest pain layer to be skipped when exporting to CSV.

Dec 03
2018
Version 2.2.1

Nanolume now provides a way for users to share a record of their pain entries. By tapping the Share button at the top of the home screen, you can export a copy of your history as a CSV (comma separated values) file. This common type of file can be opened by any text editor, but is best viewed using a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.

This version also fixes a bug that made it difficult to capture both front and back screenshots of past pain reports.
