EDS Wellness + Backpack Health
Join EDS Wellness’ Backpack Health Community and International Patient Health & Wellness Registry TODAY!
Thanks to a partnership with Backpack Health, EDS Wellness is now able to offer members and their caregivers a centralized, cloud-based mobile app that can store, organize, track and share vital health information. Plus, group members have the ability to easily participate in EDS, hypermobility disorders & related conditions research studies. Backpack Health’s powerful digital medical record keeping and research sharing app offers language translation, secure sharing abilities, plus the unique ability to take part in customized surveys.
People in the broader Ehlers-Danlos syndromes & hypermobility disorders community often require care from multiple medical providers, which can become daunting in families where multiple members are affected.
Through a unique partnership between EDS Wellness and Backpack Health, LLC, the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes & related conditions community can download the Backpack Health app at no charge. This app offers people with EDS, hypermobility disorders & related conditions, such as heritable connective tissue disorders, inflammatory connective tissue diseases, Gastroparesis, Mast Cell Activation Disorder, and Chiari malformation, a secure way to manage their healthcare records. The app was designed specifically for those living with complex, rare, and chronic conditions.
