KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – A University of Tennessee professor has developed a mobile app to help burn survivors after they have left the hospital. “Once a patient leaves a burn unit they are left with a lot of responsibility,” said Thereasa Abrams, assistant professor in the UT College of Social Work and developer of the app, in a statement. “This app will give them the proper direction for themselves and for their caregivers.” The app, called “Bridge,” can be personalized to the patient’s needs and will include instruction on dressing procedures, exercises, quizzes and questions to rate the patient’s pain, and nutrition tips. The app will be available later this year.
