Changing the way physicians see wheeze

Our solution can help transform the way physicians interact with patients experiencing wheeze while they are away from the clinic. wheezo®, our FDA 510(k) cleared medical device, the respiri™ app (patient user interface) and our health portal can help different health organisations and providers connect with patients to improve collaboration across the care setting.

Ongoing, longitudinal visibility of patients’ wheeze
wheezo® provides physicians with the ability to continuously detect wheeze outside the clinic.
  • Wheeze is detected and the system provides a WheezeRate for each breath recording
  • WheezeRate history can be viewed longitudinally for each patient via the Respiri health portal
  • Wheeze recordings are available for clinician review and immediate playback

WheezeRate Detector system
respiri™ mobile app detects wheeze & reports WheezeRate.
wheezo® breath sensor records abnormal breath sounds
FDA CLEARED (510k, K202062)
Class II medical device
wheezo® is a breath sensor (medical device) that works with the respiri™ mobile app (patient user interface) to record and track wheeze.
  • Integrates into Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) programs
  • breath sensor is non-invasive and easy to operate with no clinical training required
  • History of WheezeRates and high-quality playback of wheeze recordings available immediately for clinician review

wheezo® is intended to detect and record abnormal breath sounds (continuous adventitious breath sounds or CABS) at the windpipe (trachea), reported as WheezeRate in adults & children ≥2 years. It is not for diagnostic use. A licensed health care professional’s advice is required to understand the meaning and importance of the wheezo® readings.

Are you a Provider or Health Plan interested in a demonstration of our solution? We would love to hear from you.

    Yes, I would like a demonstration of the wheezo® breath sensor device and the respiri™ solution for detecting wheeze.
    Simple, smart technology makes it easy to detect wheeze
    Just breathe normally

    Thanks to wheezo® patients can take breath recordings from home easily, helping medical professionals hear and detect wheeze like never before.

    Taking a recording is simple
    1. Connect the device to the respiri™ app via Bluetooth®
    2. Place device on windpipe to record breath sounds
    3. Relax and breathe evenly for 30-60 seconds

    The respiri™ mobile app runs a wheeze detection algorithm to identify wheeze and display a wheeze rate.

    A licensed health care professional’s advice is required to understand the meaning and importance of the wheezo® readings.

    Additional respiriTM app features

    In addition, the respiri™ app also supports patients to log and track self-reported symptoms and triggers. Recordings are stored with weather and environmental data like pollen counts and air irritants present at the time of recording.

    Patients can build a personal profile to share WheezeRate history, breath sound recordings and self-reported data with their physicians.

    Access more objective reporting of wheeze
    Historically wheeze has been challenging to assess. The current standard for wheeze detection requires a clinically trained health professional using a stethoscope1-3.
    Wheeze is challenging for patients to identify
    During consults with clinicians, parents of children with wheeze did not notice the wheeze which was present and detected by doctors in 39% of cases4.

    wheezo® detects wheeze as well as a respiratory specialist2

    The algorithm analyses the breath recording spectrogram to detects wheeze as well as a respiratory specialist2

    A database of 189 recordings was created from 56 patients aged 21-87 years old. Three experts were used; two respiratory physicians and one respiratory technology expert.

    The x-axis is the wheeze rate calculated using the experts consensus and the y-axis is the wheeze rate calculated by the wheezo®  algorithm. The value of R squared represents the percent of variation shared between the two variables.

    It’s how patients can detect wheeze
    See wheezo® in action

    Your physician may have suggested that you use wheezo® together with the respiri™ app to record and detect wheeze. In partnership with your physician, you will create a history of wheeze, store wheeze recordings and log self-reported information about symptoms and possible triggers. This data can be shared with healthcare professionals to give them a clearer picture of your wheeze.

    Thanks to wheezo® patients can take breath recordings from home easily, helping healthcare professionals hear wheeze like never before.
