App name: UP!
Tagline: The smart mood diary
Description: UP! is a highly automated smartphone app developed for people suffering from bipolar disorder. It supports users in keeping a mood diary and eases the process of documentation while keeping motivation up!
How it works: UP! is a mood diary that keeps track of the most relevant health parameters autonomously via smartphone sensors. Additional parameters such as mood, early warning signs, medication and notes are entered manually with the help of daily reminders. The aggregated information forms the basis for detailed insights on mental well being and helps to understand the psychology behind one’s mood. UP! supports users in the collection, documentation and visualization of this information and enables them to monitor themselves and share valuable information with their therapists or doctors for improving their treatment.
Documentation made easy by generating long-term reports in PDF format. Reports are a useful tool when talking to therapists or doctors. They can be either print or directly sent inside the app.
UP! was developed with scientists to support people who must cope with a bipolar affective disorder (bipolar 1 and bipolar 2). The app digitizes routines and concepts suggested by supranational treatment guidelines and implicitly implements a psycho-educative & cognitive behavioral therapeutically (CBT) approaches.
These are the benefits of UP!:
• Increases the competency to differentiate between normal mood swings and disease symptoms.
• Sharpens the competency to recognize early warning signs.
• Supports patients in a better understanding of the psychology behind their moods.
• It is a valuable companion for psychotherapy.
UP! is available for free in the Google Play Store. A Premium subscription with additional features and the integration of confidants and doctors will be available soon. Stay tuned!

The company Meemo-tec was founded in 2016 by Manfred Weiss, Ralph Gruber and Christian Pendl with the goal to improve patient empowerment in the field of mental health by using cutting-edge technology.
The initial idea to build an app for bipolar people results from personal consternation of one of the founders. The lack of suitable tools to support people with bipolar disorder was the start of this journey.
