(hereinafter: „Provider“, „FOSANIS“) to the users of the Mika App (hereinafter: „App“). Anyone who downloads and registers the app and thus concludes a contract for use is considered a “user”. The Provider offers the app on the basis of these Terms of Use.

(2) Deviating regulations of the users do not apply unless the Provider has expressly confirmed this in writing. Individual agreements always have priority.

§ 2 Functional scope of the app and application instructions

(1) The app is a program designed to help alleviate the psychological and psychosomatic consequences of cancer diagnosis and therapy. The app and all of its components and functions support cancer patients who want to receive information from the app, e.g. in the areas of nutrition, exercise, training, everyday tips or well-being.

(2) The aim of the app is to reduce stress symptoms as a result of cancer diagnosis and therapy and thus improve the quality of life. The app also offers a stress test and guides the user through guideline-compliant psycho-oncological interventions consisting of psychoeducation, relaxation techniques, strength and mobility training and coping skill training with techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT) and creative therapy. This resource-activating training improves health behavior, stress management and coping with illness. A personalized knowledge library offers further psychosocial and psycho-oncological support with the help of compact information on individual types of cancer, guidelines and supportive health behavior.

(3) The scope of functions of the app includes a check-up. This allows the user to measure their stress on a weekly basis and specify stress areas. The user documents side effects of the therapy daily in a symptom diary with a graphic progression. By exporting the data, the symptom diary can be shared and discussed with the medical treatment team to adjust the medical drug therapy if necessary. So-called themed trips form the psycho-oncological coping skill training. It has a modular structure and includes application exercises to reduce stress. The app also offers lay-friendly, evidence-based and guideline-based information on individual cancer diagnoses, current therapy options, nutritional knowledge, recipes, Tips for dealing with physical limitations as well as individual exercises for relaxation and movement. In order to receive personalized information, the user can provide additional information about their age, gender, clinical picture, disease stage, diagnostic data, etc. The user can review all of their information at any time in the app.

(4) There are no medical contraindications for using the app according to ICD-10. However, it is important that the resource-activating training (movement exercises, as well as mindfulness, acceptance and relaxation exercises) are only carried out after consultation with the treatment team, should restrictions (e.g. orthopedic restrictions, postoperative restrictions, bone metastases, severe depression) be present. In addition, physical training should be avoided, for example, in the case of fever, nausea, dizziness and acute bleeding.

(5) Further details on the scope of the app can be viewed on the Provider's website at www.mikahealth.co.uk. Questions about the operation of the app can be clarified at any time by email to: support@mika.health
