My Travel Health by Travel Health and Wellness LLC
DescriptionThis App helps travelers safeguard their health before, during and after travel. Whether you are traveling for business or vacation, the last thing you want to do is spend your time sick in your hotel room or worse end up in a hospital.
With some planning you can reduce your risk of becoming ill when youre traveling. My Travel Health is based on content licensed from Mayo Clinic and is the only App developed by experienced travel medicine consultants focusing on your health during travel and provides practical tips for preventing and handling illnesses while traveling.
Using the App is super easy:
1. Find your destination by browsing or searching from the home (Destinations) screen.
2. When you find your destination country, press Add This to My Trips
3. Get a list of recommended vaccines by pressing Health and Vaccinations. (If you have not received the recommended vaccines for this trip, contact your healthcare provider). This section also tells you if you need to take medicine for malaria prevention (an infection transmitted by mosquitoes that attacks and breaks down red blood cells in your body).
4. Packing List recommends things you should carry with you for that trip (touching the radial buttons marks those items complete). You can modify this list and add new items.
5. To Do section reminds you of important travel and health related preparations you need to make before your trip.
6. Save your travel documents and health related information in My Stuff section.
Details of App features:
. Customized recommendations for travel health based on your travel itinerary. Proof of certain vaccination may be required for certain destinations. Recommendations on safe travel for sick travelers.
. Licensed Mayo Clinic's content for "Health" section provides information on symptoms and prevention strategies for a broad range of travel related illnesses including Jet Lag and Sleep, Motion and Altitude Sickness, Travel Diarrhea, insect transmitted illnesses and many more.
. Latest safety alerts are a touch away. Navigate to Travel Alerts and Warnings issued by US Department of State (links provided in the app). While in this section, enroll in Smart Travel Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service to allow U.S. citizens/Nationals traveling abroad to enroll with the local U.S. Embassy.
. Stay fit while on board aircraft and prevent the dreaded blood clots in the legs. Our app provides simple but customized exercises that can be performed with limited leg space on board aircraft. How? Well, we've got pictures to show you how.
. Tired of pulling your passport and visa out to fill out customs and immigration forms on board aircraft? What if you lose your passport while traveling? We've got you covered. Store all your travel documents in "My Stuff" section.
. Keep your vital health information in your pocket. The app lets you store Immunization records, your doctors contact information, list of allergies, medication information (pictures of pills, dosages, frequency) and your health insurance information. This information can be life saving in case you lose your luggage and medications kept in it (Trust us, it happens more frequently than you think).
. Store unlimited customized items with pictures in the My Stuff Custom Item section of the App. It is up to your imagination as you can use the packing list as your shopping list. All information is stored on your device, making it available when needed and eliminating cloud-based document storage risk.
. Upon return, archive the trip and you can use your customized lists for your next destination (a great feature for frequent fliers).
Friendly reminder: Keep in mind that this app is not a replacement for consultation with a Travel Medicine Doctor or your primary healthcare provider. Recommendation may change based on your detailed travel itinerary, purpose of travel (business or vacation or missionary work) and your existing medical conditions.
Customer ReviewsPertinent and trustworthy information (5 stars)
What I really liked about the app is the vaccination section; it gives you a list of vaccines that you should consider before traveling to a particular country; a list of other useful considerations and other information on preventing and handling travel related illnesses. What is especially good about the App is that is designed by travel medicine consultants from Mayo Clinic; information that you can trust. Highly recommended.
