UpBeat is an app for teenagers with heart conditions (15 to 19 years) who are starting to manage their lives and health care more independently. It is a tool that helps young people with childhood heart disease (CHD) to engage with the health care transition process (moving from paediatric to adult care) and the self-management of their condition.
The core purpose of UpBeat is to empower teens who live with a heart condition. It does this by:
- helping them log and organise their health care information;
- providing access to educational resources; and
- linking them into support services and peer networks.
UpBeat does not provide calculations or measurements based on the information that users input into the app.
UpBeat is free to download from the Apple Store or Google Play.
