Mind Body Boost selects myFitApp to improve mental and physical wellbeing of students across Europe
We are delighted to have been chosen as the Mind Body Boost project App provider.
The Mind Body Boost program is an Erasmus+ funded project designed to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of students across seven European institutions.
myFitApp was selected due to its flexibility which allows a wide variety of visual styles and custom user experiences to be implemented, whilst having an app management web interface that is simple enough to allow someone with no prior experience to quickly learn and operate all its components.
The ability to adapt the App quickly and easily was an important requirement for the Mind Body Boost team. The project is a pilot project, so content is constantly being changed or updated in response to feedback received. Our myFitApp platform easily accommodates this type of dynamic project. With user experience configurations to fit all situations, Mind Body Boost were able to easily configure their own App, in-house, through one single ‘master site’ that could be replicated and adapted across all seven European sites.
The program consists of a six week (one session per week), custom-designed, fitness and mental intervention delivered by experts in sport and counselling services.
The overall aim of the Mind Body Boost project is to encourage social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport. After several successful pilot programs launched by partners at Trinity College Dublin, Mind Body Boost decided they needed an app to accompany the delivery of each session.
The App was designed with two functions – the provision of additional resources to supplement the material presented during the program, and a centralised place to host various surveys used to collect feedback data regarding the efficiency of the program and feedback of delivery.
Alexander Morrison, Mind Body Boost Project Assistant said of the App – “The seamless integration of both functions within one app tool allows the students to access excellent online resources, alongside the surveys we need to collect data about the program. The support we have had from the team at myFitApp has been incredible. They have been there to help us create and launch the App through every step of the process, providing support from the smallest design query all the way to helping push our App through a stringent Apple Store application process. I can confidently say the App would not be what it is now, nor would we have been able to launch it within our time-scale without the myFitApp team!”
The App provides a central location for the students to access any resources they might need throughout the program. This content includes a summary of the material presented during the program, a bank of additional online resources which provide students with a variety of mindfulness exercises and exercise classes, and importantly it hosts several resources to signpost students to professional help when in crisis. The usefulness of the App extends past the student’s participation in the program. The App can be used as a reference when students would like to refresh their understanding of the topics presented.
Innovatise, the company behind myFitApp, supports over 2,300 gyms, leisure centres and Universities and it is important to their team to be able to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of individuals all over the world.
Thomas, Innovatise CEO said “We are delighted to be able to support the incredible vision of the Mind Body Boost project. At Innovatise, we are dedicated to providing solutions to organisations that directly support individuals with their physical and mental health, and this project encapsulates that, into one App. The Mind Body Boost program really showcases the flexibility and depth of our App solution and we’re extremely proud of that.”
