-- The company is a pioneer in the healthcare industry's shift toward mobile health solutions and body sensing devices that enable self-monitoring for specific health conditions
The AsthmaSense mobile app tracks asthma symptoms (signs of breathing function, medication usage) and the treatment plan. Used in conjunction with the company's proprietary Acoustic Respiratory Monitoring (ARM(TM)) system, the app is evolving to integrate wheeze monitoring into the risk-sensing equation, as well as the user's geographical location, weather, and air quality factors that may affect asthma patients.
In order to facilitate the continuous monitoring and data security of the asthma patient's condition, iSonea upgraded the AsthmaSense app with an integrative cloud storage database platform to offer enhancements in mobile asthma monitoring services. The AsthmaSense Cloud software is currently integrated with lung capacity measurements from Peak Flow Meters and/or spirometry.
"The interpretation of cloud-based data and communication systems enables physicians to recall relevant events, trends, and measurements of response to treatment when the patient is exposed to various conditions leading to an asthmatic attack," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst
The AsthmaSense app displays "hint bubbles" on the phone screen for a smooth operating experience. It also provides health practitioners and caregivers with a real-time framework for monitoring asthma patients and, consequently, offers feedback for managing asthma. For instance, the app can alert the patient or caregiver to increasing risk of an asthma event, based on
"In comparison to other competing solutions, adapting iSonea's asthma monitoring technology to the smartphone provides an easier and more convenient means of data collection, analysis, and communication," noted
