Launch of SymTrac™ App


Tuesday December 16 2014 10:13 AM

Track and record your symptoms to optimise your medical consultations

The first dedicated iPhone symptom tracker app for people with MS was launched for download. The SymTrac app records general health and wellness information and symptoms over time, and also creates easy-to-read charts which can be stored and shown to healthcare professionals during medical consultations. By recording and keeping all of this key information in one place, people with MS can chart their condition between appointments, and make the most out of their vital consultation time. 

SymTrac is a free app designed by people with MS, developed in conjunction with Novartis Ireland, which allows people with MS to build a comprehensive picture of how they feel over a long period of time. It stores information about what part of their body is affected, and the severity of each symptom recorded. 

It is important to keep track of symptoms and overall wellbeing so that any improvement can be noted, or if any progression of symptoms is recorded they can be dealt with more effectively. This information can help to guide people with MS and their healthcare professionals with important decision making regarding their treatment and management of their MS. 

Symtrac also includes a series of exercises developed in partnership with a specialist neuro-physiotherapist in the MS Trust (UK). It can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or later. An android version is also available from Google Play. Alternatively, a paper version of the symptom tracker can be downloaded from www.symtrac.com
