Flohaler / Asthmatic Inhaler

Flohaler
Flohaler

A recent study in the UK found that 70-90% of the time asthma inhalers are used incorrectly.
With correct inhaler usage, 50% of medicine reaches the lungs, however over time complacency leads to users adopting a poor technique, in which only 7% of medicine is inhaled. Flohaler aims to ensure maximum medicine inhalation into the lungs by encouraging the user to adopt correct posture and technique when using the device. The unique design prompts the user to grip rather than pinch the inhaler, while the angled mouthpiece encourages them to lift their chin, straightening their throat.
