Breathe.Easy / Asthma Monitoring System


Many asthmatics learn to live with symptoms unnecessarily, or reduce their lifestyle through fear of attacks.

Breathe.Easy is a system comprising of a portable asthma inflammation monitor, and an accompanying mobile phone application and wearable allergen sensor.

The inflammation monitor allows asthmatics to customise their medicine dosage every morning, and see any trend or rise in inflammation before experiencing the symptoms.

The mobile application monitors allergen forecasts and crowdsourced allergen sensor data. This allows users to for example shop, walk the dog, or play with their children, with total peace of mind.
