In-Spire's mission is to be able to provide an easy and stylish way to take asthma medication on-the-go, or in the state of emergency. The co-inventors, both asthma patients throughout their lives, used their own personal experiences in order to create a device that can improve quality of life for the millions of people who suffer from this chronic condition. Worldwide, 10% of the population has asthma. This number is more than double the population of the United States. While standard inhalers exist, they are often not accessible when most needed. In-Spire is a single, sleek band that has a small inhaler integrated into it. The bracelet can be re-opened and refilled after each use, creating a sustainable and reliable product for consumers. Accessing the medication is as simple as opening the band and using a bite activation method. This product creates value for active adults who have asthma and want a simple, reliable solution, especially for exercise-induced bronchoconstriction. It is also geared toward younger asthma patients who are likely to lose or forget their conventional inhaler devices. This wearable technology device offers a novel, affordable and effective solution.
