Navigate Pain

Visual insight for clinical reasoning

A software solution for health professionals that extracts and displays meaningful information about a patient’s pain or discomfort.


Patients can indicate areas of pain or discomfort using an intuitive color palette together with a range of body schema charts.

Why you need this

Describing location, shape and spatial distribution of pain and discomfort is difficult and takes time. Enabling patients to easily transform this information will allow the consultation to begin on the right topic.


A web application simplifies chart management by seamlessly interacting across devices and portals.


Patient information as captured from the best assessment tools should not be compromised due to integration barriers.


We offer a multi-level security for hosted data using a 3-tiered architecture with token based authentication.


We let the users need dictate the levels of support. We offer user documentation, tutorials and user support services.


Navigate Pain emerged from an evidence-based medical environment and evolved through state-of-the-art research. Our team’s primary focus is to enable pain and symptom experiences to be expressed as medically relevant information graphics.

We believe that when patients communicate and document their experiences through visual graphics, healthcare professionals obtain more quickly the insight needed for pain management. Connecting and sharing the patient's experiences between the healthcare team is faciliated through these visual graphics.

Navigate Pain is a technology that was developed within a university environment, Aalborg University, Denmark, and research and innovation surrounding the technology has received support from various foundations.


Detailed accounts of pain area, extent and distribution.

Knee pain

The knee is a highly complex structure and unique patterns of pain expression can provide immediate insight for trained professionals.

Back pain

Back pain, a common complaint, is known to originate from a number of sources. Detailed documentation provides an intelligent starting point for clinical reasoning.


Capturing symptoms associated with whiplash and how the pain may evolve over time provides an indication of whether a treatment plan is working or needs adjustment.
