Testers needed for new COPD app

3 July 2018

UoM Researchers have developed a COPD app to help people track their symptoms, and need people to help test it.

Researchers from UoM are looking for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or those caring for them, to take part in a study. The aim of this study is to test a mobile app which we have developed with and for people with COPD. We need people to help us test it to find out if it is easy to use and if there are any problems with the app. 

You can take part if you have COPD, or you know someone with COPD, and if you have an Android smartphone. To take part, you need to download our app from Playstore onto your phone and use it (as much or as little as you like). The app is called “CityVerve COPD”. It can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.ionic.cityverve

It’s completely free and we don’t make any financial gain from this app. After using the app, you can also contact us to give us some feedback about the app. It will be very useful to hear your thoughts about our app, whether you think it is easy to use and helpful, or not. This will help us find any problems with the app.
