For my project, I aimed to look at the theme of cancer recovery. There are an estimated 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK which is a number that is ever increasing and expected to reach 4 million by 2030. The number of people surviving cancer for 5 or more years after their diagnosis is also increasing. The number has risen by over 260,000 in the last 5 years. Therefore, I believed that there is an increasing need to help people on this recovery journey.
I designed an app called "Resume" which aims to help, motivate and encourage cancer recovery patients to get their life back in a gamified and fun way that is built upon goals, challenges and rewards.
The app is broken into categories to help the user in 5 different areas of their life: Social, Exercise, Nutrition, Appearance and Work.
Users can set their point targets for each category and for completing these are given a reward in order t encourage and motivate. The app could be partnered with global scale businesses such as Costa Coffee and could provide a reward such as a free coffee if you bring a friend.
