ORCAS creates health care technology solutions that help people manage their own well-being. The company has multiple products (web apps, websites, and tablet apps) targeting goal setting, emotional well-being, back pain, repercussions from concussions and living with asthma, among others.
My focus today is a web app called MoodHacker. MoodHacker targets people with depression as a way to set goals and lift spirits – it can also be used as a diary to simply track the few things you accomplished today and how it made you feel. As the ORCAS website denotes, “MoodHacker is based in CBT and positive psychology, but the app is anything, but clinical. Exercise, sleep, nutrition, and mood are woven into a simple, social, engaging, and persuasive user experience.” You can get started here: MoodHacker.
