What does the app do?
This is a simple app that calculates the user's risk of stroke within the next 5 or 10 years based on a number of risk factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, lifestyle and other health factors. The app also provides information about the key signs of a stroke. Users are prompted to choose whether they want to allow their data to be used in a research study into stroke risk and prevention. The pro version allows users to save or share their results and provides more information about stroke and stroke risk. For a more detailed description of the app, see Google Play or App website and for a detailed review, see Reviews.
