Powered by Apple’s ResearchKit, a team at Icahn School of Medicine (US) have developed an app that not only helps those with asthma to learn more about condition but also collects valuable data for medical research. The app reminds users to take their prescribed medications, record and track triggers that bring on asthma attacks, track the daily usage of controller and rescue inhalers and receive notifications about the local air quality. The study is only open to residents of the United States, United Kingdom or Ireland. The app is available for free download on iTunes.
