PEOPLE with respiratory problems can breathe easier, thanks to a new iPhone application.
The new application has been developed by the Sussex Air Quality Partnership in partnership with King’s College London and covers the whole of Sussex and London.
It informs users of the local air pollution levels. This means that those with breathing problems can alter their daily activities and medication to fit in with their local air quality.
‘Many people suffer with breathing problems – from asthma to pulmonary respiratory disease. Air pollution can make these conditions worse, and so information made available by this new application helps them to make decisions about their daily activities’, said Councillor Heather Caird, deputy leader of Chichester District Council.
It is available to download free from the iTunes application store. Go to itunes.apple.com/us/app/sussexair/id409140527?mt=8. More information can be found on the Sussex Air website. sussex-air.net.
