The Stroke Riskometer mobile app (Smartphone-based)
Did you know 1 in 4 people experience a stroke in their lifetime? Up to 80% of strokes are preventable and a tool has been developed to help you.
Developed in collaboration with international leaders in stroke prevention, the Stroke RiskometerTM app is an award winning and easy-to-use tool for measuring your individual risk of a stroke. The app is able to calculate your risk through evaluating a series of risk factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, lifestyle and other health factors that directly influence your likelihood of a stroke within the next five and ten years. It will supply essential information on how you can reduce your chance of having a stroke and will monitor your risk as you start to modify your personal risk factors. The app is suitable for people aged 20 - 90+
The app project already involves over 300 renowned stroke experts from 102 countries, making it the largest international collaborative mobile health project in the world.
The app is free of charge and available in 19 languages, meaning it is now available for 70% of the world's population (5.3 billion people). It is available from the App Store, or Google Play. For further details and to download the app, click here.
*The free version of the app is endorsed by:
- World Stroke Organization
- World Heart Federation
- European Stroke Organisation
- World Federation of Neurology
- International Association of Neurology and Epidemiology
- And a number of national stroke organisations, including the Stroke Foundation of Australia and Chinese Stroke Association
Users of the Stroke Riskometer app can elect to join the RiBURST international research study, where they can submit their data to help us better understand stroke, its risk factors and develop global prevention strategies.
The PreventS-MD webapp is built on the Stroke Riskometer mobile app but designed for clinicians who can use it in conjunction with the electronic patient management system of outpatient clinics and hospitals. By communicating with the electronic patient management system of the health provider it allows semi-automatic collection of information on stroke risk factors to calculate an absolute and relative 5-year risk of stroke and generate patient-tailored recommendations for primary and secondary stroke prevention for the individual patient.
PRIME study (A Clinicians’ and Patients’ Survey to examine PreventS for Primary Stroke Prevention)
This study aims to examine clinicians’ as well as patients’ perspectives about the usability of the PreventS app for stroke prevention in clinical practice and to update the PreventS-MD system based on their feedback.
