App-based pain diary


We are a young and motivated research group in the field of clinical psychology based at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). We are currently busy conducting a study concerning the course of chronic pain. Today, we ask you to consider taking part in our study as a subject.

With the concerned project, we hope to find new ways in developing innovative treatment options for people battling chronic pain.

To be able to do that, we need all the help we can get – we need you! Every participant is of extreme value to us.

If you...

… have been dealing with a pain issue for at least three months
… use an Android smartphone and
… are at least 14 years old,

… you are ready to participate.

The app is available at the Google Playstore (beta version). Find it here:

The app is a diary application which asks you to answer three questions a day for two to three weeks (duration appr. 1-2 minutes). Once a week, you are asked to answer an additional couple of questions (duration appr. 5 minutes).

By doing so little, you can help a lot!

 Help promote research by taking an active part in it!

Apart from your sex and age, we do not ascertain any of your demographics. The app does not connect to any personal information on your phone. Your private data does not concern us.

After the study is completed, we offer you a therapeutical spot in following online intervention programs based on the research. We are currently preparing the intervention.

Thank you in advance!
