This App achieved an ORCHA score of 65%.
It was assessed as a Level 3 App. These apps can be focused on general health or supporting specific health conditions. They may collect data and they may have a number of more advanced features. Where they collect data we assess their data use policies and compliance with relevant standards. Because they are health focused we also assess their compliance in the Clinical Effectiveness as well as the User Experience domains.
This App doesn’t collect any data and it is therefore only assessed and scored based on its performance in the User Experience and Clinical Assurance sections of our review.

“I’ve suffered from panic attacks for almost 10 years. I’ve done CBT, medication, meditation, but nothing helped me in the moment when that panic attack hit, until I downloaded Rootd. Rootd makes it feel like someone is with me, even when I’m alone. I owe my continued stability to this simple genius app. Its a MUST for all who are facing the same type of war with anxiety.”

Finally, an app for conquering panic attacks and anxiety that blends a guided process for both immediate and long term relief, with clean and engaging design. Get Rootd to always have panic attack and anxiety relief right in your pocket.
We set out to build Rootd after suffering from debilitating panic attacks and anxiety for several years. The only help resources we could find were too expensive, ineffective, or poorly designed. Our mission has become to help others overcome their panic, fear, and anxiety, and to end the stigma against those affected.
Rootd’s core features and content are completely free, and always will be. This includes:
Always there to help anytime you feel overwhelmed by an anxiety or panic attack. After activating the Rootr with the press of a big red button, you are presented with two guided paths to relieving the panic: one for when you’re ready to face the panic attack head-on, and another for when you just want to find comfort as quickly as possible.
Find some peace of mind by learning about where anxiety comes from, how our bodies and minds experience panic attacks, and why this all might be happening to you.
The perfect tool to practice deep breathing daily and find calm during times of stress.
Guided body scans and visualizations to get rooted when feeling anxious.
For when you need to hear a friendly voice, you can immediately call a friend, family member, or nearby help center directly from the Rootd app.

WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
This review area looks at what information an App collects from users, what it does with that information and how secure is its handling of that data. For some Apps this is only a minor issue as they don’t gather much information. Other Apps can gather lots of very personal and sensitive information and for these it is important to know how they go about handling this.
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
This review area looks at what evidence there is that there is a suitably qualified professional or organisation behind the App or that it has been endorsed, accredited or underwritten by such an individual or organisation. It also assesses what evidence there is around user testing and the effectiveness of the App in terms of claimed health benefits. The higher the Level of the App and the more sophisticated its functions, the more crucial this becomes.
