Children's asthma band / Portable inhaler

Children's asthma band

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2020

Children's asthma band is a portable spray inhaler for children who suffer from asthma. Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that may impede airflow and trigger dangerous bronchial spasms. The great advantage of the wristband portable inhaler is that it is always at hand – literally – when the child needs it. The nozzle is designed to reach the mouth with a single upward movement of the hand, thus giving the child immediate relief in the event of a sudden asthma attack. The band also tests the child's respiratory and heart rate, alerting parents if an attack is imminent.

The specific usage scenario that inspired this design is heartrending, as it reminds us that even children suffer from chronic and incurable illnesses. This device is designed to strike a balance between offering immediate assistance in the event of an emergency without excessive impacting on a child's daily life. The device has a comforting look and feel, and a child-friendly mode of operation. However, we feel that the designers need to think more carefully about the rationality of the product size.
