Support to deal with symptoms/disabilities
Provides information about living with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and helps a person be aware of progress in coping with the condition. Supplies facts about the condition and its symptoms, plus the available treatment options. Information on posture, and on managing fatigue, flares, and sleep, are supplied. The user is taken through a Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI) test, and assessed for degree of functional limitation. Progress over time can be logged through graphs. A set of videos created under the supervision of Waterford Regional Hospital, Ireland, demonstrate exercises that aim to improve the physical functionality of people with AS. The videos can be rated by the user for usefulness, and specified as favourites. Information is also given about managing the condition when in education, training or employment.
