Leeds & York Partnership NHS
The Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders within Leeds & York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust recognised that eating disorders – much like other long-term and chronic conditions – required an innovative approach to patient care and self-management outside a clinical environment. With this in mind they approached us to develop a mobile app to meet these needs.

We wanted this app to be as interactive, customisable and visually attractive as possible in order to ensure maximum usage and engagement. So, we created ‘Upbeat’, an app that not only gives patients the tools to autonomously manage their disorder, but also provides a support system where patients can directly message their clinician. The app is highly customisable with areas such as Goals, Schedule, Distractions and Quotes being personalised and tailored specifically for the user, with users being able to chose widgets for the dashboard. All information collected from the app is sent and stored within a web portal where the users progress can be reviewed by their personal clinician.
Upbeat is currently still in development at Roller HQ in Nottingham and being built natively on both iOS and Android to ensure optimum performance.
Expect to see Upbeat on app stores soon.
