Mapping Asthma Attacks on Google Maps
In an innovation aimed at the country's 25 million asthma patients and the physicians who treat them, Asthmapolis has added wireless technology and various sensing and GPS capabilities to the standard asthma inhaler. The end result is a smartphone-linked biometric monitoring device that, among other things, creates a Google map of the exact time and location where asthma attacks occur each day. The trends of that geo information show the user environmental asthma trigger locations to avoid in the future. Dinane Kaye explains the system at a recent University of Pennsylvania Connected Health Symposium.
