FRAXA Research Foundation
Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) is a mental retardation and autism spectrum disorder that currently has no cure. The purpose of this project was to work with the FRAXA Research Foundation to increase participation in clinical trials for new FXS therapies. We surveyed FXS families and utilized literature resources to design an app that would allow users to locate nearby clinical trials for new FXS treatments using GPS services. The app also includes a discussion board designed to increase communication between members of the FRAXA community. The mobile app design was implemented using XCode. The result of this project is a storyboard that details how a user would navigate through the app, thus making the actual creation of the app as quick and cost-effective as possible.
