Shriner's Scoliosis App

Category: Mobile App

Developed by the orthopaedic specialists at Shriners Hospitals for Children®, SpineScreen gives parents a quick, informal way to regularly monitor their child’s spine. And, it’s easy to use! Simply move your smartphone along your child’s spine and SpineScreen detects any abnormal curves. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can restrict movement and in some cases lead to other serious medical conditions. It is most commonly diagnosed between 10 and 15 years of age, when children grow rapidly. Because there is often no known cause, monitoring for scoliosis is an important part of a child’s ongoing healthcare. Shriners Hospitals encourages parents to download the free SpineScreen app and check kids annually.

My Role: Design Lead

I was responsible for the entire design of the app as well as the illustrations and motion graphics tutorials used throughout that walked parents through how to use the app step by step.
