Have you overcome Covid, but still don't feel well? The Zhiva app helps people with post-covid syndrome.
About the product
We launched the Zhiva app in June 2021 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and its long-standing symptoms in a high percentage of infected people (at least 1 in 10 infected people suffer from post acute covid syndrome). Thanks to our collaboration with the insurance companies Union and Dôvera, we offered the app free of charge to their clients. In the Zhiva app, users received information on possible treatments for a number of symptoms, a list of doctors who treat long covid syndrome, and also simple video exercises to improve symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath, or anxiety.
At the beginning, the user goes through a series of tests according to the symptoms they suffer from. More than 200 different symptoms have been identified for long covid syndrome, ranging from neurological to respiratory problems, loss of smell, taste and even memory and concentration problems. The test results will show the user which symptom to address first.
During operations, 7,575 people have used the app. It was opened 23,000 times and had 172,000 views.
