Local 12: UC grad creates app to help kids with physical therapy
EVOLVE hopes to begin testing with providers, patients soon
Nicole Chance found her physical therapy for scoliosis to be boring and confusing and saw younger kids who struggled even more than she did. That was her inspiration to develop an app called EVOLVE that will help kids complete their exercises while having fun.
"We are exploring by the realms of maybe a customizable character, being able to unlock trophies or being able to earn clothing for your character or redeem points for something,” Chance said.
"To be able to have a true impact on people is what I’m most excited about,” Chance said.
