Posted on August 9, 2019

The Medtech Insight Awards 2019 have shortlisted Aseptika’s Asthma+me solution in the category of ‘Best Technological Innovation: Digital’.

Asthma+me has been co-designed with a Paediatrician at an NHS Trust (UK) to support transition from treatment in a specialist paediatric clinics to community care, with the initial focus on meeting the needs of children aged 6-12 years with moderate-to-severe asthma. Support includes wireless medical monitors, medication diaries, trigger alerts for pollution/pollen/weather, symptoms tracking, care plan and an extensive educational syllabus.

Asthma+me is used with Aseptika’s PUFFClickerTM – a smart tracker for pressurised metered-dose inhalers, counting doses, recording that the inhaler is shaken properly and includes a timer supporting an improved inhaler technique.

Children are involved in setting their goals and motivated by incentives agreed upon with their parent/carer to promote behaviour change, increasing adherence to their Asthma Care Plan, generated automatically on their Smartphone.
