The app does not give any medical advice but aggregates evidence-based knowledge to increase health literacy in patients before major surgeries such as cancer resections in the abdomen, the thorax, the breast, or major surgeries such as bariatric surgery, or vascular surgery. Other indications may also profit from the information in easy language and general considerations before surgical procedures. The app can be used by patients older than 18 years that are awaiting major surgery and doctors treating such patients.
