Their mission is to serve anyone whose life has been affected by TBI, including people with brain injury, their families, and professionals in the field.
They have compiled an impressive list of 45 apps for mobile devices for people suffering from a brain injury, and their families and caregivers. The list gives the name of the app, which devices it can be used on, a thorough description, price and what the app can help you with.
The BrainLine team says “We sorted through many resources to compile this list of apps for mobile devices for people with a brain injury, their families and caregivers.
Some of these apps have proven to be especially helpful for people with brain injury. The phone can be used to remind you of an upcoming appointment or to take medication, or it can be used like a traditional paper notebook to keep all your addresses, telephone numbers, calendar items, lists, and ideas.”
