We believe that an appropriate visualisation of these data can bring a better understanding of the individual course of the disease for the patient, his relatives and even to his psychiatrist.
Due to long-term data collection, the psychiatrist will have a more comprehensive view of the development of the disease and the impact of medication changes, which will allow effective treatment settings.
The activity sensor is a part of a small, lightweight, waterproof bracelet with a battery that lasts up to 6 months without charging. The data are transmitted to the Mindpax.me mobile application through bluetooth. From the mobile application, the data are sent via an internet connection to a secure database for activity and sleep calculations. The calculated data are then displayed directly in the mobile application and on the user's web portal. We also offer an alternative transmission device instead of a mobile application.
The mobile application works as a data transmission system and as a source of other supportive data (mood questionnaire, medication, important life events). The data are then displayed in a form that allows a better management of the disease. Part of the mobile application are also educational materials that provides useful information about the disease.
The Mindpax web portal provides a more detailed view of the data than the mobile application. It can also work as a substitute for the mobile application when filling in the mood questionnaires by the user and his relatives.

How much would you remember to tell your doctor so he/she could adjust your treatment?
Therefore, the doctor's decision is based on the experience to ask and the patient ability to describe.
And because it is not always optimal, patient experiences relapse from bipolar disorder or schizophrenia on average every 2 years. This also often leads to lengthy hospitalization.
