Summary

Diary that allows people with asthma or allergies to document their symptoms and potential environmental triggers. Symptoms can be noted on a daily basis, along with medication taken, and relevant lifestyle habits that might have a bearing on the allergy. Photographs of the user's skin can be taken to document dermatitis. Data is recorded in the form of charts and graphs, with the intention of passing this information to the user's doctor (can be sent at the touch of a button). The accumulated information on symptoms, medication, peak-flow readings, etc, is added by the app to data on current pollen count, air pollution levels, rainfall and temperature (available in Switzerland only), to give the user's doctor more relevant information. The app records the doctor's contact details, and each transmission to the doctor. Also offers tips on coping with allergy. Personal data is protected by PIN access. This app is an extension of a three-year allergy study of the EU research project HIALINE (Health Impacts of Airborne Allergen Information Network), led by the Institut für Allergieforschung [Institute for Allergy Research], Helmholtz Zentrum München, Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Gesundheit und Umwelt [German Research Centre for Environmental Health], Germany. Anonymised user data sent by the app to the project will help researchers learn more about allergies and forecasting symptoms.
