Day by day, or when it suits you, you register how you are affected by your RA. Consequently, you will get a better understanding of the different factors that affect your disease.
Use the barometer to register how you feel regarding pain, tiredness, mood and stiffness. You can also use a pain map to pin out where on your body it hurts the most.
Choose between written notes, sound files and pictures to document your day. Then you do not have to remember everything yourself, especially when you visit your rheumatologist.
Your daily registrations result in a rewarding overview after a longer period. For example, statistics will show you the connection between your pain, mood and level of energy/activities.
You can easily show your rheumatologist how you have been since your last visit – and not just how you feel on the day of your check-up. That ensures a better and more targeted treatment.
Share tips and advice with other people that have RA. For example, use the app to get a helping hand or supportive word on a bad day and give something in return on a good day.
RheumaBuddy is primarily a tool for young people with RA to achieve a unique insight into their own condition – and thereby how they can become motivated to break bad habits and adjust their life in a more positive direction.
To professionals, RheumaBuddy is also an advantage. The foundation for counselling and treating the individual patient becomes stronger. Often at visits to the specialist, patients have trouble describing in detail how they have been feeling since last time. That does not leave you, the specialist, with a true and fair view of their general condition.
In contrast, when your patient uses this app you will get a holistic insight instead of a snapshot.
You receive more information and a better understanding of how your patient has really been. That provides you with the opportunity to target your treatment of your young patient.
We are continuing the development of RheumaBuddy and are already drawing up version two. We can reveal that the development includes a service for professionals and health care professionals within rheumatology; a service that will make it even easier to get insights on how the RA is affecting the individual patient.

At this moment, RheumaBuddy is available in Denmark. We are looking for partners and sponsors who could be interested in giving people with rheumatoid arthritis in other countries the possibility to use the app.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more, join us for a meeting or become our partner for the RheumaBuddy app in your country.
Young people can also get rheumatoid arthritis. That is the reason why FNUG exists. They meet up and talk about RA and everything that comes along. But they also talk about all kinds of stuff that young people, with or without RA, talk about. FNUG was founded in 1983 and the goal is to make life easier for young people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and to raise knowledge about the fact that not only elderly people get the disease.
