Fibromyalgia Association of Sweden (Fibromyalgiförbundet)

Fibromyalgia Association of Sweden (Fibromyalgiförbundet) has been granted money from a state fund to run a project that will benefit those suffering from fibromyalgia.

The representatives of the association declare:

"The goal of the project is to develop an interactive digital platform which will serve as a forum to share information and personal health. There will be a knowledgeable and experienced health-coach available for motivational support and advice.  We want fibromyalgia patients to have access to the health portal free of charge and in the comfort of their own home. The portal will address areas such as physical activity, stress, pain, sleep, diet and social issues. There will be interactive tutorials, program, and information in the form of pictures, films, text and audio files with emphasis on visual feedback and notifications for monitoring progress. The users can live chat and directly contact coaches and peers to share experiences and provide motivational support.

The content of the portal is based on market analysis and professional experience and will be under continuous improvement and development over the next few years.  The users will have a great influence on how the interactive platform will take shape throughout the project and this fall the market analysis started successfully. The aim is that the portal will be open to the public at the end of 2018."
