Tonya Palermo, director of the Pediatric Pain and Sleep Innovations Lab at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, has released a free mobile application (app) for Android and iPhone to help youth ages 10 to 18 who are experiencing chronic pain. The app is based on content from the Web-based Management of Adolescent Pain (WebMAP) Internet program that has been tested in multiple clinical trials. It helps teens learn about chronic pain, set goals for increasing their physical activities, learn relaxation and imagery strategies, and receive interventions for problems with sleep and low mood.

WebMAP Mobile is available to download in the United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and the United Kingdom.
