What can Brain Changer do for me?
Brain Changer is a card and app based system for people who have had pain education in a clinic and want to harness that knowledge through a daily program. The card decks help people pace themselves and build safety into their day. By using the app you will be able to recognise when your brain is escalating your status away from ‘safe’ and be prompted to counteract the danger signal with a stronger ‘safe’ signal. The app will also show your progress over time, helping identify patterns that you can use to re-calibrate your rehab program in consultation with your health care practitioners.
Brain Changer is designed to be used under the supervision of health care professionals, including Pain Specialists, General Practitioners, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
