A new app aims to alleviate the can­cer-related fatigue that plagues many patients and survivors and improve their quality of life.
Untire provides infor­mation on what causes fatigue, educational vid­eos and tutorials, weekly reports to measure prog­ress and access to a private online community of peers. The daily program consists of a tip and three sections: My themes includes topics like fear, worry, anxiety and sleep; My Exercises suggests stress-reducing mind-body activities such as breathing techniques; and My Physical Activity offers energy-boosting exercises.
Developed by psycholo­gists, patients and research­ers, the free app can be used by patients and survivors of any cancer type or stage.
Available in 25 countries, Untire is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play. To learn more, visit untire.me.
