Inexpensive COPD home monitoring and treatment management device
Cambridge Respiratory Innovations’ overall aim is to develop an inexpensive COPD home health device specifically targeted at personal monitoring and treatment management. The device is simple to use and monitors normally exhaled carbon dioxide using III-V mid-infrared LEDs. The device helps COPD sufferers better manage their health and enables healthcare professionals to assess the effectiveness of treatment through periodic review of the data collected. It is hoped users will experience fewer uncontrolled exacerbations.
