Dear stakeholders involved in the RehApp developments,

Today, we would like to share with you the good news: the RehApp 2.0 is finally ready to be launched. These past few weeks we have been testing the RehApp prototype in order to identify bugs and other issues. We are pleased to report that the new version is now ready and has been submitted to both the Google Play Store and the App Store. We expect approval within the coming weeks and would like to officially launch the app with you all, on June 17, 2022. Several speakers from different organisations have been invited to share their preliminary experiences with the new app as well as how their own innovations can complement it, and Chapal Khasnabis – Head of the Access to Assistive Technology and Medical Devices Unit at the World Health Organisation – will give the keynote speech. All those who are part of the RehApp network, including additional parties having expressed their interest, will receive an invitation to the online launch by the end of May.

Until the launch, we will continue to add translated content into the CMS so that the app can become available in more and more languages. Currently, some of the languages available include English, Nepali, Khmer, and Portuguese. Content in Amharic, French, Spanish, Tajik and Vietnamese will be added.

Parallel to this, we are of course continuing to develop additional content in multiple languages. We still have a few chapters of the initial 21 planned to develop, including Communication Disabilities, Hip Dysplasia, (Juvenile) Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psychiatry and Post-Polio Paralysis. We would therefore like to ask readers having experience in these topics to contact us, should you be interested in helping us develop one or more of these chapters. As with any chapters developed, we will continue to carry out field testing in order to improve them. We are also looking to see what tools can be integrated into the RehApp as plug-ins, as well as developing additional features and/or apps, such as a milestone tracker in collaboration with Roelie Wolting and CARITAS Cambodia.

Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude and thanks to two main funding partners, CARITAS Germany and Light for the World International, without whom the development of this new version of the RehApp would not have been possible.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
