Evidence-Based Self-Management for Spondyloarthritis Patients
We present a concept including a set of tools for self-management for patients suffering from axial spondyloarthritis (SpA). This concept involves patient-recorded outcome measures, both subjective assessment and clinical measurements, that are used to present recommendations. We report from experiences made while implementing a proof of this concept and analyse it from several perspectives. Our work resulted in proposing a self-management tool for the patient, improving the methodology for clinical measurements of rotation exercises, and proof the viability for using on-board sensors in smart phones. Further, since sensors collect data in a medical setting, we present ethical considerations.
