AirRater app launched in the Territory – an exciting new asthma support tool!
The ‘AirRater’ smartphone app was launched in the Northern Territory at the Asthma Foundation NT offices in Parap.
AirRater is a free, award-winning smartphone app that was developed by a team at the University of Tasmania. The app is designed to help people with asthma, hay fever or other lung conditions to better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
AirRater does this by providing easily accessible, real time and local information on key environmental triggers of asthma, such as bushfire smoke. It also allows you to track symptoms and identify which conditions impact your health. The app will also send you alerts when the air quality is poor - helping you understand when you need to take action.
The app is now freely available across the Northern Territory, funded by the NT Government’s Environment Grants program. The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, or Google Play for Android devices.
