Put Sensors for Inhalers in Perspective
"Smart inhaler" technology (Hailie, Propeller, ProAir Digihaler, etc) for managing asthma or COPD is creating a buzz.
The idea is to track inhaler use. But put this in perspective.
Add-on sensors (Hailie, Propeller, etc) are manually attached to inhalers. Patients sync the sensor with a mobile app to get dose reminders, record when a puff is delivered, and see trends.
