This free health app from the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) is designed to help you stay one step ahead of your rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Monitor and track aspects of your RA using the Disease Activity Score, or DAS28 (so called because it assesses 28 joints in the body). DAS28 is a measure of how well your RA is being controlled and how well you’re responding to treatment.
The assessment is quick and easy to complete and the ‘Know your DAS’ app carries out the mathematical calculation needed to produce your DAS28.
The information is stored on your device only and your progress can be shared with your healthcare professional (HCP) over time so that together, you and your HCP can build the best possible picture of your RA and decide whether any changes in treatment are needed to help improve the management of your disease.
The app features include:
* DAS28 assessment calculator
* Health diary
* Video guide
* ‘Capture your own joint’ camera feature
* Summary of results reporting tool
* Email results to your HCP functionality
* Further information on DAS28
* Medicine reminders
* Register and save your data to the cloud
* Sync data across multiple devices
This app has been developed with support and funding provided by Roche Products Limited and Chugai Pharma UK Ltd to help people with RA more easily track and manage their disease to enable better outcomes.
