ComeBackStrong App

by the National Stroke Association

CB_Circle_BluGry_500pxIn my last post I reported on the ComeBackStrong Movement for stroke announced by the National Stroke Association. ( See Previous ComeBackStrong Announcement )

In this post I am following up with a video review of the ComeBackStrong App.   Designed with feedback and suggestions from stroke survivors and caregivers, this free app by the National Stroke Association is advertised to:

  • Keep track of your medications and set reminders
  • Provide you with exercises to strengthen your arm or leg and improve balance
  • Keep your medical information in one place
  • Provide nutrition and diet guidelines
  • Store reputable stroke information at your fingertips

My Video Review of the ComeBackStrong App

My App Review Summary:


  • (+) Clean design, easy to get started (although a welcome video with quick start instructions would be nice addition)
  • (+) Medical Info,Medication,Contacts Entry and Emergency (Send Help Feature) are all excellent


  • (-) No Goal Setting Feature
  • (-) Currently only 3 Exercises in Exercise Tracker

What Do You Think of The App?

I gave you my 2 cents, now what do you think? Did this app meet your expectations? Comment below please!  Also please take our quick poll to chime in if you are already using the app, you think you’ll use the app now that you know about it,  or even if you think you are unlikely to use the app.  If you completed the survey when the app was in development we would appreciate your feedback if you feel it met your needs.  Thanks!
