High-Tech Asthma Inhaler Sensor


Asthma Technology
Asthma management is the key to keeping your asthma under control. Doctors recommend their patients record asthma symptoms daily in an asthma diary or journal. However, our busy lives sometimes make it difficult to remember to update an asthma journal every day. That’s where technology such as smartphones and “smart” inhalers can provide help.

High-Tech Inhaler
Asthmapolis, a company devoted to the creation of technology to help asthmatics, has developed a high-tech sensor for inhalers. The sensor uses both Bluetooth and GPS technology to track and record each time an asthma patient uses their inhaler. The device records the amount of medication used, along with the date, place and time the inhaler is used. This record is then sent to the patient’s smartphone and/or doctor.

The inhaler sensor received FDA approval last year and is still in the research phase in the U.S. Studies conducted by Asthmapolis have shown that more than 70 percent of patients’ asthma improved after three months of using this technology.

Benefits of the Inhaler Sensor
Asthmapolis’ sensor is a small device that fits on top of a regular inhaler, making it easy to use. The device can be used with both rescue and controller asthma medicines and it records all necessary data after pairing it with your smartphone. Asthmapolis has developed mobile applications, free for both iPhone and Android devices, which allow you to review medication usage right on your phone. The mobile application also includes an Event Log that shows the details for each time you’ve used your medicine. In addition, you can track your child’s medication use and receive alerts when your child uses their rescue inhaler.

Not only does the sensor create an asthma diary for you, but it also helps pinpoint your asthma triggers, which means better asthma control.

What About Privacy?
We’re all concerned with privacy when it comes to medical issues and “smart” gadgets. Asthmapolis stores your asthma data in a highly secure computing cloud infrastructure, ensuring each patient’s privacy. Asthmamoplis’ website states that all precautions have been taken to ensure your medical data storage is HIPPA compliant and secure.

Technology is a big part of our everyday lives; the melding of electronic “smart” gizmos are becoming important for managing many health conditions. Soon a sensor will become available for our inhalers. The combination of an inhaler sensor, Bluetooth and a smartphone may work together to better control you and your kids’ asthma.
