Almost half of American adults own a smartphone today and by 2016 worldwide smartphone users are expected to reach 1 billion. And there’s an app for almost everything, including monitoring your health.
Approximately 1 in 12 Americans has been diagnosed with Asthma, 8% of our population or about 25 million people. If half of those also have smartphones, this app could really be of use to many, many asthma sufferers.
The app is called AsthmaSense and it is available for iPad, iPhone and Android devices. AsthmaSense offers an opportunity to enter your “action plan” and keeps track of your plan by reminding you of what you are supposed to be doing. You can also keep a record in AsthmaSense of your test results, events, medications and symptoms.
Other features of AsthmaSense include:
- Record and manage data
- Set alarms for medications
- Quickly get emergency contact information
- Keep a journal of your symptoms
