Spoon Theory is based on a simple calculation. Blackburn Labs leveraged its strength and history of developing calculators and algorithmic logic to develop Spoonie Day.
Using a framework of React and Google’s Material UI, Blackburn Labs made a compelling application with a simple user interface to host this energy-tracking management system.
Spoonie Day gives users the ability to plan, track, and manage their spoons. It’s a tool meant to make life more manageable and to keep their trusted circle informed so they receive the best support.

“I developed this application so that those with chronic illness would have a resource to help manage their energy reserves and have a universal lexicon to describe their situation, based around the Spoon Theory. The amount of positive feedback we received is incredible, as well as the diversity of users. We’ve had messages from those who are suffering from the loss of a child, others trying to wean off of methadone, as well as those suffering from chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia, lupus, lyme, and MS. We are thrilled to be able to give people a resource that provides some relief to those navigating a path that seems impossible to manage.”
