Respia / Products and Applications


Respia is an asthma management system that tracks and records the user’s respiratory health and medication use. It is the complete redesign of existing aerosol inhalers coupled with a world first wearable patch that tracks respiratory health and provides live haptic feedback.
Asthma is the inflammation of the airways when exposed to environmental triggers or stress. It is often confusing, whilst suffering from mind clouding symptoms such as shortness of breath and panic, to know which medication to use and when to take it. Respia empowers the user to take control and creates behavioural change in the long term management of asthma.
