We have built a small glowing smart button that can be easily added to any asthma inhaler, called GeckoCap .

Thanks, waiting to hear your thoughts!

Wow! that sounds amazing! I love it! How do you promote correct use of the inhaler? It is the kind of product I've been looking for to motivate my son to use his inhaler.


When is this going to be out on the market?
