Official App Demo!
My name is Vijay Baliga and I am a sophomore who wanted to make an app to help children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). I realized it would be helpful for the kids, their therapists and their parents to monitor the exercises the kids had to do at home. And that's what CP-Fit is intended to do.
It was merely a passing idea a couple years ago and I did not know if I had the skills to develop it. But my parents and friends encouraged me to do it, so I decided to learn Swift and give it a shot.
Once I had a decent understanding of the Swift Language, I developed the User-Interface. I am no artist, but I drew them up on a piece of paper like a blueprint. I got feedback from a doctor at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Stanford, CA and physical therapists including at California Children's Services (CCS). Their feedback was very helpful, including not sending any data via server to satisfy HIPAA regulations.
It was very difficult to integrate things like charts, so I had to use third party frameworks. Day by day, I tested the app and had people give me feedback. I made changes accordingly.
I asked my parents for help and they helped me find a graphic artist based in Croatia to help me design the artwork. This also made me realize, 50% of the work was coding, and the other 50% was communicating with my team.
Currently, the app is promoted in many hospitals and medical clinics spread throughout California and I am trying to spread more awareness about the app and helping those with CP.
Expect new features in near future versions of the app and also an android version of the app!
