"The Asthmapolis inhaler sensor and mobile application is the perfect representation of how Bluetooth technology is enabling innovative and life-enhancing uses cases in everyday products" said Suke Jawanda , Bluetooth SIG CMO. "A standard medical device, an inhaler, can now collect data and turn it into useful, and potentially life-saving information for patients and physicians. Asthmapolis is redefining what is possible with wireless connectivity - making asthma management more convenient, smarter and better with Bluetooth."

Asthmapolis uses a novel combination of snap-on, Bluetooth enabled inhaler sensors, mobile applications and advanced analytics to help patients and physicians with asthma management. The FDA-cleared mobile health platform, available in both English and Spanish, helps individuals stick with their daily preventive medications, reveals insights about their use of rescue medications and provides personalized feedback, targeted education and other tools that improve their ability to successfully manage their disease. Through crowdsourced information, Asthmapolis is creating the first real-time geospatial view of where asthma symptoms are occurring and inhalers are used, providing an objective, accurate and reliable record capable of correlating symptoms, locations, and temporal patterns of disease.

"We chose Bluetooth given the ubiquitous installed base of clients in smartphones, low power capabilities and perhaps most importantly, the ability to help us reduce the form factor of the Asthmapolis sensor. With our Bluetooth sensor and our smartphone app, we can carry the time, date and location data about an asthma event through to our server in an elegant, streamlined way," said David Van Sickle , CEO and founder, Asthmapolis. "It is an honor to take home this prize in the Bluetooth Breakthrough Product Category, particularly since it is awarded by the Bluetooth SIG – fellow innovators who are pushing the envelope with Bluetooth technologies in ways that will change the future of healthcare."
