Otto / Asthma management device

Otto

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2018

For many asthmatics the daily routines of asthma management can be a complex process entailing monitoring the condition, logging results and inhaling the medicine in the right way.
Otto combines the process of monitoring, logging and medicating into one seamless experience. How much medicine do I need today? Did I inhale correctly? Is my condition improving? Otto guides the user through the process with lights and sounds and lets you know.
Otto works by exhaling through the mouthpiece to take a peak flow measurement. Medicine dosage is adjusted automatically based on the measurement and inhaled in spray-form through the same mouthpiece.

Friendly and smart design approach.
