In January 2022, the following article about the current situation of COPD patients was published in the Financial Times: https://www.ft.com/partnercontent/astrazenec/copd-the-biggest-killer-disease-youve-never-heard-of.html. A similar article is available in Dutch on Skipr: https://www.skipr.nl/partnernieuws/de-tijd-voor-copd-is-nu/.
MonitAir believes the articles make very clear the extent to which the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is causing underestimated diseases such as COPD to be neglected, and the consequences COPD patients are suffering as a result. They also make clear how important smart medical devices such as MonitAir have become to improve care for COPD patients.

Together with COPD patients and researchers from the Radboudumc in Nijmegen, we worked for a long time on the MonitAir app. We are therefore very pleased that we have won the 2nd prize for the Medical Inspirator Award 2017. The app has already been downloaded more than 1000 times!
