Use Tech to Take Control of Your Arthritis
Looking for a better way to manage your rheumatoid arthritis? Navigating daily life with a chronic illness shouldn’t feel stressful. At Arthritis Research Canada, we want to make your life easier. We conduct research that helps people find solutions to challenges caused by their arthritis.
The OPERAS web/mobile app is one example. It stands for “On-demand Program to EmpoweR Active Self-management” and was designed to help people like you, living with rheumatoid arthritis, to monitor how your symptoms and physical activity levels change over time alongside your treatments.
Tracking your health over time is beneficial because it gives you the opportunity to learn more about your arthritis – like what triggers flares, how physical activity impacts you and how different symptoms may be related to each other.
With OPERAS health tracking, you can gain a better understanding of your disease and be more informed when making decisions with your health care team. You can even bring the app to rheumatology appointments to remember symptoms on a given day when speaking with your physician.
Most importantly, you can take control of managing your disease. You won’t have to rely 100 per cent on physicians when it comes to your health.
