In 2020, Triumf Health is launching an essential health app for parents. The aim of the mobile application is to give parents information about their child’s health and wellbeing and support their own self-efficacy. Learn how!

Why is the Triumf app for parents good for me?

Is your child struggling with a chronic health condition such as cancer, asthma or diabetes? Or perhaps your child experiences weight issues, and thus can be at risk of developing lifestyle-associated diseases? In that case, you must be overwhelmed with all the health-related information that your doctor gives you (not to even talk about all the information available online). Triumf app for parents helps you because we know how burdening any disease management for the whole family is.

Triumf app for parents offers validated information on the health and wellbeing of your child, therefore creating a communication bridge between you and your child. For example, did you know that the fear of pain is often even worse than the pain itself for kids? How should you handle this situation? Where should you seek for support? And that’s only one really small topic of interest, there is so much more health related information to share and support with. Triumf medical app for parents

However, health-related information can also overload kids. For kids to be an active part of their own health, the information is absolute necessity - children need to be continuously educated on their wellbeing. But when too much is given too soon or not when needed, it increases the risk of burnout from disease management. How to solve this issue? Since the Triumf app for parents can be used in connection with the Triumf game for kids, you would see what information your child has received and the parental app gives you suggestions on how to discuss those topics further.

Another option is to use the Triumf app independently and rely on the validated information that is available in the application. It proposes various general topics to discuss with your kid on a daily basis and also gives suggestions on how to do it. The application as a standalone solution can be a valuable tool - we’re dedicated to providing trustworthy information, such as the one received from the doctor. It means that you don’t have to navigate through extensive online information, especially given that most of it can be inaccurate. Triumf app for parents relieves the burden of finding reliable, effective health-related information.

As mentioned earlier, we know how burdening pediatric disease management is for the whole family. How do you cope in this situation? It is beyond difficult in the fast-paced society to take care of work life, home, personal health and then monitor a child’s health.

We know that you are doing the best you can, which is why we would like to empower you through the Triumf app, especially when times are tough.
