 The Intelligent Asthma Management Kit (ADAMM)

 10 Smart Medical Devices That Are Changing HealthCare 2015

Daniel on November 7, 2015
Health Care Originals came up with an automated smart medical device (ADAMM) particularly designed to lessen the workload associated with monitoring chronic asthma.

 The device, popularly dubbed as the Automated Device For Asthma Monitoring And Management (ADAMM) comes with a secondary app that allows the health caregiver to get real-time info concerning the asthmatic patient. Most of the time, both the device and the companion app are connected to the hospital’s private network (as opposed to external broadbands or mobile data connections) to lessen the chances of interference from outside signals.

 With such a setup in place, a nurse/doctor can keep track of their patient’s improvement track record or alerted in the event of a serious Asthma attack. Other than that, the device and the app can also aid in scheduling treatment plans and notifying the relevant medical personnel whenever the patient is due for treatment and charting the progress or deterioration of the symptoms.

A Smart Inhaler for People with Asthma

Tracking Asthma

The full system, launched in 2014, called CareTRx, is a small cap equipped with sensors and onboard memory that fits over the canister of most metered-dose inhalers. When a user presses down to deliver a dose, the onboard memory stores that data. Then, when the user is near a mobile device, the cap automatically connects and syncs to the cloud and to the product’s app. Lights around the cap also illuminate when it’s time for a dose.

The app offers several features: a diary that tracks potential triggers, peak flow, and symptoms; notifications for upcoming or missed doses; a percentage of prescription adherence; and a “badge” system for users, which rewards them for certain “good” behaviors.

Users own the data, but can share them with anyone, such as health care provides or caregivers. Researchers and clinicians, with permission from the users, may also use another dashboard component to track usage among entire populations of patients anonymously.

The sensor can also track overuse of rescue inhalers, which is sometimes overlooked, Engelhard says: A patient using a rescue inhaler, say, five times during a run when they’ve previously only used it a couple times, for instance, can signal an underlying issue. “There could be something wrong. Your airways are getting inflamed narrowed and we make it more transparent to you,” he says.

The app presents the data in a simple to understand traffic light system, helping asthma sufferers understand if they’re in danger of having an attack.

Knox's app can track lung health

By Sophie Bushwick  October 19, 2015

When a child with asthma goes to the doctor, he or she can breathe into a device that tests lung strength. But that doesn't track the child's day-to-day ability to breathe. So Knox Medical Diagnostics is developing a home version of the device that connects to a smartphone app. Popular Science host Katie Linendoll spoke with Knox founder and CTO Huyson Lam at the 2015 Kairos Global Summit to learn how his app can provide a clearer picture of lung health.
