A self-learning application
MonitAir offers a validated and CE certified solution for COPD-patients experiencing life threatening exacerbations. We developed a self-learning application, based on a patented Bayesian Network computational model, which can be used on smartphone or tablet. MonitAir can predict exacerbations several days before occurrence and gives patients advice on how to avoid or lessen the impact of an exacerbation. The measures have been predefined with their practitioner; such as medication, specific breathing exercises or a doctor’s consult.
Patients are asked to enter data on a regular bases:
- The amount of air one can breathe out in one forced breath measured by a spirometer
- Oxygen saturation measured by a pulse oximeter
- Body temperature
- A yes or no questionnaire
MonitAir gives patients control over their COPD and reduces fear of exacerbations. Patients using MonitAir experience more freedom in day-to-day life. They are less afraid of physical exercise, resulting in better general health and improved lung condition.
