In recent years, the incidence of bronchial asthma have been increasing , becoming a worldwide health problem.

Breathe is an asthma inhaler which can better serve the elderly patients with arthritis.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Elderly asthma patients are often accompanied by the onset of skeletal diseases such as arthritis, which can lead to joint stiffness, swelling and deformity, intermittent joint pain and pressing pain. And they often have weak hands. At the same time, the deterioration of systemic organs and the slow response due to aging also limit the use of products of elderly patients.

CONTEXT

Asthma is a chronic disease that occurs in people of all ages, characterized by polypnea and repeated outbreak. Currently, about 300 million people have asthma. In 2015, 383,000 people died of this disease, among which the elderly are the majority.

In recent years, the results of epidemiological studies on senile asthma have shown that the number of old people suffering from asthma is increasing year by year. Domestic studies have shown that the incidence of severe asthma in elderly asthma patients is almost two to three times compared to that of non-elderly patients.

The product can be aware of the location of the elderly in advance through infrared range sensor. When the distance reaches the preset value, the product performs the atomization operation without additional operation, alleviating the pressing difficulty of the elderly patient. At the same time, the simplified buttons and functions will be achieved, in order to make the product easier to be operated.
