Working closely with the Child Brain Injury Trust team, 3 Sided Cube has developed a content-based app, primarily for parents, which presents information and resources most pertinent to their situation. The app evolves as circumstances for families change, providing customised information and guidance to best support parents.
Parents can refer themselves to the charity directly through the app, allowing parents to obtain additional support and arrange to meet a coordinator through CBIT directly.
3 Sided Cube performed a comprehensive Discover and Define (D&D) phase with the CBIT team to fully understand their needs, the problems they were facing and the different user types who may use the app. Concept user testing was successfully conducted with the different user groups to identify trends and areas of improvement. The testing highlighted the huge need for a simple to use, personalised app which filtered content depending on your circumstance.
The findings from the D&D phase allowed us to develop a V1 app for CBIT which meets their business and user needs, becoming a main resource for parents requiring support during a traumatic and challenging time.
Real-life stories from families who have been through a similar trauma was shown to be important as was the knowledge of online support communities.
