Former Springbok team doctor Yusuf Hassan has developed a ground-breaking app to track vital health indicators during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Hassan – a renowned physician who served as Springbok doctor between 2004 and 2007 – developed the app to assist individuals with applying active measures and monitoring of their vital signs in the fight against the coronavirus.
By using the free ASSIC app platform and website, an individual would be able to identify signs and symptoms related to the coronavirus, among other things. It will give free access to Covid-19 risk tools to help users to understand the dangerous risks associated with the coronavirus.
The app is integrated with Apple Health and Google Fit.
‘This app was designed to empower the individual by self-monitoring. By using the ASSIC app, individuals will be able to do self-monitoring on a daily basis by using the set of tools on the app platform,’ Hassan said.
‘You would still have to follow the regular health protocols and inform your doctor or health professional about your current state of health. What this app does, however, is to assist you to self-monitor some of your vitals so that you can make a much better decision as to when to consult your medical professional.
‘You can do this by following a few simple steps – once you’ve signed up it will give you access to those guiding steps and you can start to apply self-monitoring immediately.
‘We believe this app is unique in that it will give you accurate data and insights and help you to make better decisions from a health-monitoring perspective,’ Hassan added.
‘You can do those easy-to-follow steps from within the comfort of your home, thereby reducing the risk of any possible contamination or perhaps having to undertake any related travelling, for instance.’
