Supporting asthma and COPD patients during inhalation
The highly sensitive and small flow sensor provides feedback to improve patient inhalation technique. This allows physicians to optimize individual therapies.
Sensor technology allows a better understanding of the medication intake and thus reduces the side effects of over- or underdosing.
Caretakers and insurance companies can closely monitor the patient's adherence to therapy and disease progression without additional effort from the patient.
Inhalers can be upgraded with sensor technology, which can be either integrated or attached as a clip-on solution. This is based on a proven solution in medical ventilators (e.g. CPAPs).
Inhalers are among the most commonly used devices for treating respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). With each inhalation through the inhaler, the device delivers a specific amount of medication to the lungs. However, when it comes to proper inhaler use, misuse is the norm.
