Custom application


For the psychiatric hospital Heilig Hart Ieper, XIO redeveloped the "balkmetafoor" (a supportbeam metaphor) application. The online application is an interactive wizard for the visualisation and analysis of individuals with schizophrenia or other mental problems.

Custom development

XIO built a first version of the wizard as a Java application in 2007 and now rebuilt this tool into an ultra-modern HTML5 web application. The AngularJS framework for the tool itself is complemented by a Drupal 7 website and hosted by XIO. The application is completely anonymous, and operates on the basis of an (anonymous) XML data format that can be rendered into a PDF or downloaded as a datafile.

The Balkmetafoor site is available in Dutch only. For more information, feel free to contact us.
