Centre for Process Innovation Limited (CPI), a UK-based science and technology innovation center, is working alongside ItoM Medical BV and Blumorpho to develop a wearable device to treat children with uncontrolled asthma. CPI will use its expertise in printable electronics in the development of this wearable. The companies aim to change asthma treatment by providing sufferers with the opportunity to take control of the disease and create a better life for themselves and their parents.
Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children, with many suffering attacks and emergency hospital visits that lead to a decrease in quality of life and a subsequent increase in healthcare costs, reports Printed Electronics World.
CPI will use its its experience in screen printing, attaching technologies for wearable electronics, and support to take products to pilot manufacture.
