Figure: How smart inhalers work
Smart inhalers use sensors and Bluetooth technology to detect inhaler use, remind patients when to take their medication and gather data to help guide care.
1. Smart inhalers have sensors that record every time a patient uses their inhaler
2. Data are communicated to a mobile app or desktop computer, and are stored in the cloud
3. Patients receive audio and visual reminders about inhaler use via their mobile devices
4.Healthcare professionals can track inhaler use and provide patients with personalised feedback and education
