Our Beta App is Now Ready for Testing :) Ever wondered how the weather may have an effect on your health? Well so have we!
Help us to discover more…
We need your help! We want to make our app as user-friendly as possible, so if it doesn’t work for you, it won’t work as an app. We need a beta tester for our private app launch, what we are looking for people are with MSK conditions such as arthritis and COPD conditions, people who have pain and fatigue, or any symptoms that you have always wondered - is it effected by the weather? We are looking for people from all walks of life, so if you’re in a wheelchair, suffer from a learning difficulty, blindness, deafness, or any other condition that where you would feel suitable, we would like you to come on board! You will receive the beta test app for free, then use the app to give us feedback so that we can tailor the app even more to everyone’s needs.
HOW IT HELPS
Know your enemy
When you suffer from chronic pain, attacks and flare-ups can come out of nowhere and completely derail your day. Weather is one of many triggers. While we can’t control the weather itself, we can arm ourselves with the knowledge to control how it affects our pain. For example, if low pressure triggers our pain, we can plan to have a light day indoors when we know a storm is brewing, and make sure we’re stocked up on medications and other pain management tools.
Beat the brain fog
Can’t you just check the weather forecast? Well, yes! However, chronic pain often comes with a side of extreme fatigue and the dreaded “brain fog”. When all of your mental resources are being drained by pain and exhaustion, small things like remembering to check the forecast or planning for weather fluctuations can feel like monumental tasks. Reminders and prompts help to lighten the mental load.
Co-Ordinate your care
We don’t always have the words, the confidence or the energy to explain our chronic pain symptoms to doctors, physios and other care providers. An app like Weather Flare can bridge the communication gap and help us to give our care providers a clear picture of what’s happening and when, potentially leading to more effective treatment and management.
It’s sunny where you are, but what about where you're going and the places you travel through during the day? Need a brolly, sunglasses or a bobble hat, need some sun-tan lotion or your asthma pump? Weather Flare will map out the weather for your journey and notify you of any possible weather changes. Need to pop out and know when there is a break in the weather, or when best to arrange that meeting later in the week? With Weather Flare’s hourly and weekly look ahead we could help you make your day less of a pain
