The Pain Diary is an Estonian-language mobile application that allows people to map pain episodes by day, listing the pain area, severity, time of occurrence, and activities that preceded the onset or exacerbation of pain. The pain diary allows the user to understand the relationship between musculoskeletal overload and pain, introduces home-based remedies to reduce pain, and indicates when symptoms indicate the need for consultation with a physician.
For health professionals, the Pain Diary is a tool that provides a detailed overview of the patient's pain frequency, severity, and relationship to daily activities, thereby enhancing treatment or rehabilitation planning.
The pain diary was developed by Tõnis Vaimann, an alumnus of Applied Computer Science at Haapsalu College of Tallinn University of Technology, who has received an input from the Health Promotion and Rehabilitation Center (TERE KK) at Haapsalu College of Tallinn University. In addition, Reelika Väli and Herstin Arro, alumni of Haapsalu College of Applied Sciences, have contributed to the development of the Diary
