Helping to make ‘New Tech’, normal tech for asthma

Dr Louise Fleming says “The clear preference is for a device that is useful, low maintenance and easy to use. There’s no ‘one-size fits all’, there are pros and cons to each technology. We’ll be using a smart inhaler with the ability to monitor inhaler technique in the next stage of a clinical trial.”

Help support more ground-breaking asthma research

Technology is advancing all the time and Dr Louise Fleming is riding the wave, working to find the best new digital tech for helping children manage their asthma. Picture a world where asthma tech is commonplace, Dr Louise’s research could help make this a reality.
