The Smart Peak Flow meter turns your phone into your personal asthma assistant.
The concept for the device began in 2014 at Imperial College, London. Smart Peak Flow was invented to help people keep track of their asthma in a convenient way. 90% of asthmatics do not follow the standard advice given by doctors, which is to track their peak flow.
Peak flow is the gold standard of asthma management. Peak flow can give clues into how asthmatics can live with less stress about their condition. Such as tracking whether their medicine is working or being more aware of triggers.
Currently, peak flow measured by hand and paper charts, which is no suprise why 90% of people don't measure it.
Several prototypes later, the Smart Peak Flow meter was put on Kickstarter. It was then 113% funded on Kickstarter. In 2017, the world's first peak flow meter to use smartphone technology was invented.
In the past few decades, provisions in asthma care has stayed the same. Asthma does not catch as much attention as other life changing conditions. But, with the emergence of new technology, this is a chance to help more people with the condition.
