Asthma affects more than 25 million people in the US alone, is responsible for 14 million physician visits each year as well as 1.8 million emergency care visits. The associated cost of treating this chronic disease is rising.
The best way to stay healthy and keep doctor visits and costs down is to monitor and manage asthma. The product creates an easy and non-intrusive way of managing asthma in the form of a wearable device. This device detects user’s breathing patterns as well as other health vitals. The wearable can inform the user when their attention is needed through an intelligent and user friendly companion mobile app.
