Medical technology firm iSonea has launched a device to help asthma sufferers monitor their condition with a smartphone.

 

The AirSonea device turns a phone into a portable wheeze monitor when held against the windpipe near the base of the throat.

 

Sounds are transmitted via the smartphone to a cloud-based site to be analysed with iSonea’s acoustic respiratory monitoring technology.

 

The wheeze rate is then downloaded to the phone.
