Now security of your health is just a few taps away, because now it is possible to measure the quality of air that you are breathing. Helpchat India’s biggest personal assistant app has launched a new feature that aims to help Indian citizens in avoiding pollution related diseases by tracking air quality in their locality. This feature monitors the air in the surrounding environment and delivers a personalized air-quality update via a mobile app.
The app tells users if the air they are breathing is toxic and suggests various ways to take precautions. The app will show the Air Quality Index (AQI) reading from 0 to 500+ (0 being the cleanest and 500 being the worst air quality) and suggest a precautionary measure depending on the air quality. Should the app sense air quality getting below a certain point, it will send an alert to your smartphone.
In addition to this, it also suggests areas that one should avoid visiting in their city so that users can plan the travel for their families and loved ones accordingly.
The AQI index shown by the app measures a number of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide, and even cleaning agents or allergens that might affect the lungs or harm the health long term. Basically we mean to say that it measures how good/bad the air is for you so that you can have be safe from any harm. So before you leave for your college or maybe that famous hangout point, do have a check.
Since pollution and its impact are directly linked with weather conditions, Helpchat app also tracks the weather conditions and updates the user in real-time. So are you waiting for the guy next door to fall sick because of bad air and then only you’re gonna get your hands on this amazing tool? I suggest you better do it now.
Over time, exposure to carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds has been linked to an increased risk of respiratory diseases, heart disease, stroke, liver and brain damage, and even cancer. Most people don’t find out that they are regularly exposed to highly toxic air until it’s too late. Okay so basically the bad air can get you real sick, you will know that if you know your science right.
Helpchat’s effort is especially important for cities like Delhi, where government is already putting in preventive measures like odd/even rules. Helpchat has launched this feature to support the Delhi government and people of India in their efforts to control the rising pollution problem.
