ounder and CEO of Asthmapolis. "In order to do that, the sensor had to be reliable and it had to meet the needs of people with chronic respiratory disease."

The end-to-end engagement updated existing designs for optimal reliability and functionality, resulting in a complex new medical technology housed in a small, lightweight, easy-to-use device. Alongside addressing mechanical concerns, such as accidental activation and design for production, Synapse enhanced the device aesthetics and ergonomics. Proper development of the Asthmapolis sensor required a deep understanding of existing inhalers with special focus on ease-of-use and manufacturability.

"The team at Synapse recommended several design changes that have improved the performance of the sensor and helped ensure it can keep up with the day-to-day life of an inhaler," says Van Sickle. "So far, the response from the participants in Louisville has been positive."

"It is important to Synapse that we are making a positive impact on the world," says Garrett. "We believe in Asthmapolis' vision and the company's ability to help the significant number of people who suffer from asthma. The technical success of their prototype was a critical milestone along the path to realizing this vision and we are proud to have been instrumental in making that happen."
