NIOX Home / Asthma Management Device


There is a growing number of asthmatics globally. Young & busy people tend to neglect their condition which can lead to serious problems, and simultaneously diminishing their life. NIOX Home is a compact device for managing asthma at home. It aims to help the individual take control of their condition. NIOX Home monitors the Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in exhaled breath as an indicator to the condition of asthma. It can recognise an impending attack or worsening of condition. Then remind the user to take regular medication and care, which in turn reassures the individual of being ‘incontrol’ and prevents further deterioration of their condition.
