SpiroSmart is a mobile phone based platform that allows for the analysis of common lung function measures.
By analyzing lip reverberation we are capable of monitoring pulmonary ailments such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cystic fibrosis. The makers say to increase compliance, they are targeting the mobile phone, a sufficiently small device that is always with the patient. Additionally, the team hopes to find methods to make the lung testing procedure part of a simple, yet engaging, game on the phone.
