SWAPP: a sleep logging app

Collaborated by: Simon Fraser University, BC Children's Hospital and Emily Carr University

Toolset:  Rails | HTML | JS | Sass


Parents of children with brain-based disabilities record a large amount of information about their child’s medication, sleep, and wake behaviours. Every parent has their own. The sheer quantity of medical and non-medical records can be overwhelming for the parents and the clinicians.


We created SWAPP to help parents and clinicians track a child’s behaviours. The app adopts a user-centered approach to collecting information, allowing parents to ‘own their data’ and individualize what they keep track of on a long-term bases, while also tracking short-term data that is requested by a clinician — such as positive or negative effects of a prescribed medication — allowing for immediate follow up, if necessary.
