Disease Activity Score
Disease Activity Score (DAS) is an assessment used by clinicians to measure rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, to determine whether the signs and symptoms have reduced or stopped, and if treatment needs to be adjusted.
This free health app from the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society is designed to help you stay one step ahead of your Rheumatoid Arthritis. The assessment is quick to complete and the ‘Know your DAS’ app carries out the mathematical calculation needed to produce your DAS28.
The information is stored on your device only and your progress can be shared with your healthcare professional over time so that together, you can build the best possible picture of your rheumatoid arthritis and decide whether any changes in treatment are needed to help improve the management of your disease.
