SiliconSky GPS Designs First AGPS-Enabled Asthma Inhaler for Landmark Research Program
Date:4/22/2009

US-based GPS product design firm, SiliconSky GPS, designs and develops a GPS-enabled asthma inhaler that will help a cutting edge epidemiology researcher to better understand asthma triggers.

Red Lodge, MT (PRWEB) April 22, 2009 -- SiliconSky GPS, a leading US-based GPS integrator and product design firm, announced today that is has successfully completed the design, development and beta-manufacturing of the first-of-its-kind asthma inhaler enabled with GPS tracking for a pioneering researcher.

Behind every great GPS product inventor, stands an innovative engineering team (www.SiliconSkyGPS.com) ready to design and build a product that has the potential to revolutionize an industry. Such is the story of two forward-thinking partners - an epidemiologist from the University of Wisconsin working to better understand the triggers of asthma and an engineering firm that is dedicated to bringing the most useful and innovative GPS products to market.

Edward Olson, CEO of SiliconSky GPS, and David Van Sickle, a University of Wisconsin researcher and entrepreneurial inventor, set out to create a medical device that would allow tracking of asthma inhaler use trends, including exact time and geographic location of uses. The result was a GPS-enabled standard asthma inhaler.

Due to the nature of asthma attacks and inhaler use, the medical device needed to function inside buildings as well as outdoors. The unit had to be small enough to fit in the palm of a user hand, comfortably in a pocket or bag. Additionally, inhaler data needed to be reliably gathered and relayed back to Van Sickle's research database in real-time, where information could be compiled, managed and interpreted.
