eTreatMD, a health-focused app developer, has just announced the release of eTreatMD myHand, a mobile health app for managing hand arthritis.
myHand enables users to measure, monitor and manage arthritis.
What’s different about this app from others like it? While most hand arthritis apps can only record symptoms, eTreatMD myHand can measure physical changes and help patients see exactly how their pain is connected to factors like weather, activity and treatment.
myHand empowers hand arthritis sufferers with meaningful information that they can use to better manage their condition, prevent painful flare-ups, and determine the most effective ways to relieve their pain. eTreatMD is licensed by Health Canada as a Class 1 medical device provider.
eTreatMD is working with The Arthritis Society to make free access to myHand available to a limited number of arthritis sufferers in a pilot trial prior to commercial release.
“The Arthritis Society is embracing digital health strategies as a way to help Canadians living with arthritis in the modern world,” says Joanne Simons, chief mission officer, The Arthritis Society.
eTreatMD myHand will be available at no cost, with additional paid features, including comprehensive reports and unlimited comparative reporting access, a provided statement reads.
