What do the users think?
“I recently started running. I’m going to use ‘MyHealthFabric’ to kick start my fitness plan and track my progress” – MyHealthFabric User
“I have been a Type 1 diabetic since I was one and a half. I control my diabetes with four insulin shots a day. Previously I found it really difficult to remember to take my insulin shots before or after meals. The App is really helpful reminding me when to take my shots. It’s also useful to track my blood sugar before and after exercise. The library access gives me links to websites and direct information instead of having to search through the internet just to find one useful website. IT’S BRILLIANT!” - Becky Cash
“I’m using ‘MyHealthFabric’ for inspiration and motivation” – MyHealthFabric User
“I’m using ‘MyHealthFabric’ to help me balance my university commitments with my social life to reduce my stress levels.” – Jess Palm
“Being an Asthmatic I’ve struggled to do high intensity exercise. Other Apps I’ve used give you High Intensity workouts which haven’t worked for me. This App is brilliant because I can create my own fitness regime with a mixture of high and low intensity. I don’t feel I need to take my inhaler as much anymore. Something as simple as this will benefit me for the rest of my life.” – MyHealthFabric User

“It makes me feel a lot happier to know my family are taking their medicine at the right time and are keeping an eye on their high blood pressure” – MyHealthFabric User

“I suffer from Epilepsy. I now get reminders to take my medications and in case I have a seizure I’ve shared my Incident Plan with everyone so they know what to do.” – MyHealthFabric User

“I’ve used the App to create plans for when I go to the gym every week so I can monitor my fitness and know exactly what I’m doing for next time and how to improve” – MyHealthFabric User

“I’ve been trying to quit smoking for four years. It’s not worked for me. Then I found this App. There’s other people’s plans I can view to see how they have managed to quit and use it to help me.” – MyHealthFabric User
