Brain In Hand was originally designed for people living with autism but is now being expanded to incorporate other acquired brain conditions as well.
The web-based software helps patients to created structured daily routine for tasks or problem situations. Features include a diary and notes for difficult to remember everyday tasks, instant access to pre-planned coping strategies, a monitor to track anxiety levels and a red button for contacting emergency services.
It aims to give users a better quality of live, better symptom management and greater independence to reduce strain placed on the primary caregiver.
