App to monitor lung capacity

Shared by Ana Duarte on 2015-11-26 10:22

About the solution

Charvi Shetty, Huyson Lam and Inderjit Jutla, are a team made up of individuals who've battled asthma personally and who created Spiritus, a mobile app and mouthpiece for testing pulmonary functions in asthmatic children.

This tool was built to particularly help pediatric patients and their caregivers, many of whom have trouble tracking their programs, thanks to a home version mouthpiece that connects to a smartphone app via bluetooth, capturing the lung function, and allowing the users to monitor the pulmonary functions. It works separately from the inhaler.

“The information is transferred to the phone, and the parents can track the results and monitor their children’s pulmonary functions on the app”, explained Huyson Lam, CTO.

“Ideally, you want to use this everyday just to see how your lungs are”, Lam concluded.

Knox Medical Diagnostics expect to have this product on the market by January 2017, as they’re still waiting for FDA’s approval.
