Challenge: Digital Service Dog App

This past Spring, Team Ginger created a mobile and smartwatch application designed to help Ginger to get out of the house and do the things that make her happy. 

The Apple Watch and iPhone app is called DiGi - the Digital Service Dog. The watch detects heart rate and notifies Ginger if she sustains an elevated heart rate, sending encouraging messages and directing her attention to slowing down the heart rate. It also uses geolocation to keep track of when she goes to new places and applauds her for doing so. 

Ginger and DiGi are out and about going to new places. As she puts it,  “I feel there’s a sense of hope now, to go forward and live the life that I lost for 40 years.”

Now the goal is to make DiGi available to all Veterans and others struggling with similar challenges. This Fall, Team DiGi will get the application ready for the App Store.

Looking for: Sponsorship; iOS app developers, documenter/communications
