Digital Self-Help for Endometriosis
The Endo-App constitutes a digital tool to support women who suffer from endometriosis. The app was created under medical guidance with experts from various disciplines such as physiotherapy, nutritional counseling, psychology as well as complementary medicine.
Studies on the Endo-App have already been able to prove positive effects on the well-being of endometrioses patients. Our next step is to offer the Endo-App internationally for endometriosis patients.
The effectiveness of the Endo-App was investigated in two randomized controlled studies. These studies demonstrated that the quality of life of endometriosis patients could be significantly increased by using the app. In addition, there was an improvement in both physical and psychological symptoms.
Based on the scientific evidence of the Endo-App, it is now listed as a digital health application (DiGA) in Germany, which means that it is considered a medical device. Endometriosis patients get access to the app by requesting a prescription for the app from their doctor or psychotherapist.
