Today there are an estimated 160 million undiagnosed COPD patients around the world. The high cost of current spirometer devices means that not even all doctors’ offices have one, significantly limiting access to those who need it. We set out to change that.

Introducing the Air Smart Spirometer, not only is it the first spirometer connected to a smartphone but at 69€, a small fraction of the cost of comparable devices, it will be accessible to patients all over the world. The design is created to deliver a superior user experience at the lowest cost possible, while still meeting the high standards required for a CE approved class IIa medical device. With it’s unique cable handling, intelligent use of in-mold textures and smart packaging, this simple two piece plastic design delivers a high quality user experience and improves quality of life.
