Pain Help

A project that explores how we can communicate pain through visual mediums.

Who hasn’t had a close relative who suffered from pain, who hasn’t suffered from pain themselves? It might have been chronic pain, it might have been acute pain or something else. For many of us describing pain can be close to impossible. You might not know the right words to use and try to use metaphors to express the pain you are in, to a doctor. Despite being such a common sensation, pain can be surprisingly hard to explain.

With the help of graphical representations and animations of pain, Pain Help aims to make it easier for patients to understand and explain their pain. This will hopefully make it easier for healthcare workers to understand their patient’s pain, and make it easier for them to give a correct diagnosis.
