Asthma is a growing public health problem with an estimated 340 million diagnosed with asthma worldwide1.

Closer to home, around 2.7 million Australians (11% of the total population, or 1 in 9) have asthma, with the respiratory disease being responsible for approximately 400 deaths per year2.

A Deloitte Access Economics report highlighted that 45% of people living with asthma have poor control of their condition and that having asthma has an impact on an individual’s quality of life3.

GIVEN THAT ASTHMA CANNOT BE CURED, ATTEMPTS AT REDUCING COSTS AND THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF ASTHMA SHOULD FOCUS ON BETTER DISEASE MANAGEMENT1.

Introducing wheezo, asthma management in your hands.

wheezo is an eHealth app combined with a simple, easy to use, handheld device.  It is the first smart device to help improve asthma management by monitoring wheeze and documenting symptoms, signs, triggers, location specific weather conditions and medication use.

The wheezo device records breathing over 30 seconds and analyses the recording for wheeze.  The engaging eHealth app provides easy access to your personalised Asthma Action Plan, stores wheeze measurements, records symptoms, triggers and medication use and sends location specific alerts about environmental triggers such as pollen counts and air pollutants.

ASTHMA CANNOT BE CURED BUT IT CAN BE CONTROLLED4

wheezo is an asthma management tool in your hands.

Having access to innovative technology for the management of asthma can improve health outcomes5.  wheezo may encourage and motivate people with asthma to self-manage their condition.  It aims to assist in improving a patient’s education surrounding their asthma, empowering them to take control of their condition.

With user permissions, patients can easily share their data (wheeze recordings, symptoms, triggers, medication use) with their healthcare professionals to facilitate shared decision making.  With wheezo in your hands, asthma care no longer needs to be confined to the clinic.

wheezo helps to extend much needed asthma care beyond the clinic

The device and app make up a secure, cloud-based mobile health platform that records wheeze and other clinically relevant asthma symptoms.

The platform allows patients, parents, carers and clinicians timely and regular access to implement a patients’ Asthma Action Plan.
