Description

The AccuPollen™ Allergy Tracker application is a free app that is designed to help allergy sufferers. The AccuPollen™ Allergy Tracker is for individuals with allergies, especially pollen that triggers allergies of the eyes (allergic conjunctivitis), the nose (allergic rhinitis), the skin (atopic dermatitis/eczema and/or hives) and for those suffering from asthma. This app will help you correlate your allergies and asthma with the local pollen count with *SPECIFIC* breakdown of types of trees, grasses and weeds.

The app allows you to see *REAL* pollen counts in your area. 'Pollen Stations' from around the country measure pollen and upload their pollen counts to our database. Automatically *LINKS* to the closest pollen station based on your location, however, you can tap any station on the map to view its most recent pollen counts.

The AccuPollen™ Allergy Tracker V 1.0 is still in early development and additional features are already under development and the goal is to provide the best aide for those suffering from pollen allergies. Therefore, we welcome any additional ideas and suggestions.

AccuPollen™ Allergy Tracker has been developed by Dr. Leonard Bielory, one of the New York Times nation’s “top docs”. Dr. Bielory, a professor of medicine and pediatrics and a board certified practicing allergist has been involved in multiple clinical studies and has cared for thousands of patients with asthma and allergies. He has been funded as principal investigator on a United States Environmental Protection Agency grant studying the impact of climate change on allergic disease and modeling the effect of pollen on allergic airway diseases.

The AccuPollen™ Allergy Tracker app has been developed by Victor Jacobson as part of a senior project grant funded by the State of New Jersey with Kean University and the STARx Technical Corporation.
