Occurrence of asthma has increased significantly since the 1970s and much of it has been attributed to the increased exposure to airborne chemical triggers. As human bodies strive hard to cope with environments they are not originally intended for, preventive measures attain as much significance as treatments. The ‘Twist+’ dry inhaler makes use of innovative technology to help with both prevention and treatment of Asthma attacks.
Designed by Diana Dumitrescu, the dry powder inhaler also houses a sensor which can detect the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds in the surrounding air. Air quality reports will be then sent to a dedicated smartphone App to warn the user. The handy App can also remind the user in case they forgot the inhaler at home. It can even keep your doctor posted about your health. Further support for asthma management is provided via Twist+ website.
