    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    How can I find early users for a technology we developed to help children with asthma?
    Engelhard posted:
    I'm part of an MIT team that worked on a hardware and software system that monitors and promotes the correct use of inhalers.
    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?
    Engelhard replied to michellefr's response:
    Thanks, we are looking for people that know about the problem first hand, and would like to start use the product as soon as it is available. I'll be happy to keep you posted, just shoot me an email or sign in at our website or FB page!
