Reviews

Reviewer: Ankylosing Spondylitis Association of Ireland (ASAI), Ireland
Review: “Using the SUAS (Supporting and Understanding Ankylosing Spondylitis) app, you can now access reliable and comprehensive information about ankylosing spondylitis (AS) on your smartphone. This application, developed by the Ankylosing Spondylitis Association of Ireland (ASAI) in partnership with Waterford Regional Hospital Rheumatology Unit, allows people living with AS to: learn more about AS treatment and management; access useful support resources and information; find out more about managing the condition in the workplace; track and graph your progress over time using a functionality index. A key feature of the app is a suite of guided exercise videos compiled by the rheumatology unit at Waterford Regional Hospital.”
