We developed a Digital Health and Wellbeing web platform for the Sheffield based start-up
The Brief.

PowrKidz’s mission is giving children the power of Healthy, Active Lives. PowrKidz needed a unique digital platform, packed full of content and features designed to help Schools deliver focused Health and Wellbeing. It needed to be accessible, secure and capable of supporting 1000’s of students.

The Approach.

We chose to develop a hybrid web app, which could run in any browser, at speed. The solution needed to be flexible, accessible on a TV, laptop, tablet or mobile device both in school and at home.  

The application had two core users – Teachers, and Students, with secure authentication and built in user management developed to secure and support the application. 

The final solution integrated into several third party services such as Vimeo, Spotify and Wonde – a school management API framework, which we used to sync real time School, Student and Staff data.

We developed the front end application, the data model and all of the business logic to support the application, as well as an intuitive back end portal where the PowrKidz team could create new content and map it to a custom framework.

Technical Challenges.

The PowrKidz application had several high complex requirements that were deliberately abstracted from the end user to make it as intuitive and easy to use as possible.

Real-time data syncing across 20 schools required robust mechanisms which could run at scale and maintain data quality.

One of the key areas of the platform is its ability to deliver a mixture of video and interactive content, with syncing between a tablet and projector made possible using realtime databases and socket technology.

A variety of experimental design elements were also prototyped including integrations with FitBit, Spotify and Azure Machine Learning.

What they said

We consulted with doddle design to develop a unique digital platform for our start-up. The platform needed to be ultra-professional, secure, scalable and more importantly we had to be able to innovate and re-develop quickly, in an agile manner. We’re extremely proud and pleased with the finished platform and feedback from schools and users has been amazing.
