Ciplahaler

Discipline: Product

Featuring a novel dose-counter the Ciplahaler makes everyday life easier for asthmatics. With high accuracy the device will countdown and indicate the number of puffs remaining just above the mouthpiece. In addition the background color changes gradually from green to red, if there are less than 40 puffs remaining. Especially for elderly and reading impaired patients this is adding assurance and improves self-management of their disease. To avoid confusing strengths tops and caps are colored differentially. With its compact size and ergonomic handling the Ciplahaler is easy to use and medication errors can be reduced significantly.
