About Elsa

Fewer and healthier with chronic disease

Here at Elsa we are working towards a brighter future living with chronic disease by making it easier for people to care for themselves. We currently focus on patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), though our goal is to help everyone living with a chronic disease to feel as good as possible.

In Sweden, approximately 50,000 people live with RA, and almost 3,000 people develop the disease each year (1). RA generally results in a poorer quality of life (2), which is something we want to challenge with the help of research. Our goal is to give people living with RA the tools to independently improve their quality of life. By logging treatment, symptoms, well-being and habits, Elsa helps you recognise patterns and connections that can put you on the path towards a healthier life.

The power of research

Our goal is to make the latest research available to people with chronic disease in a practical and educational way. For example, by highlighting facts that explain how different habits could improve the effect of your medication. In order to create an app that is based on scientific data and the latest research, we proudly collaborate with several research institutions across Sweden, such as the Karolinska Institute, Uppsala University and Linköping University, as well as other Nordic and European institutions.
