ABOUT:

Respi helps Asthmatic and COPD patients live a healthy life with a management based on the patient’s smartphone. It consists of a smartphone enabled spirometer and a connected mobile app that offers disease monitoring and coaching. Patients can have an instant, quantified assessment of their lung health, supporting decisions on rescue medication and physical exercise, whereas physicians have access to the patient’s deep pulmonary profile, enabling the optimization of the patient’s treatment.

THE PROBLEM:

Respi’s SOLUTION:

Respi offers a personalized management system for chronic respiratory disease, based on the patient’s smartphone. It consists of a smartphone enabled spirometer and a connected interpretive mobile application offering customized disease monitoring and coaching. Using the golden standard of pulmonology, Spirometry, Respi creates a deep patient profile to be used for optimizing medication, incentivizing patients and supporting patient and physician-side decisions.
