Would You Wear This Asthma Monitor Patch?

Sounds like an interesting idea…should have asked dh to check out the medical device section of CES.

Developed by out of upstate New York, the ADAMM wearable patch is an attempt to nip asthma problems in the bud before they really become a problem. The company was on-hand at CES demonstrating an early prototype of the patch, a 3D-printed three cornered badge.

The ADAMM (Automated Device for Asthma Monitoring and Management) will have an adhesive that can stick to the front or back of the wearer's torso, not entirely unlike a nicotine patch. It monitors for early breathing issues and sends an alert to a smartphone, so action can be taken prior to a full-on attack. The accompanying app can also offer alerts and medication reminders.
