Mobile breathing measurement


Project description

This project focuses on the development and validation of biosignal analysis methods and defining business opportunities for a mobile respiration measurement tool. 

Allergies, asthma, COPD, air pollution and indoor air problems are a growing burden on our respiration, on our easiness of breathing. Currently, there are no handy tools to measure respiratory symptoms where and when they occur, for example in workplaces with a poor air quality.

Our aim is to create a solution that is easy-to-use, easy-to-carry, reliable, inexpensive, and measures both nasal and lung breathing. The smartphone-based concept provides commercial possibilities both in self-tracking and health services. This provides benefits for patients, medical doctors and pharma industry in follow-up, treatment decision and in research purposes.
