Lung disease affects over 7 million children in the US. The proper monitoring and tracking of lung health can be a critical tool in managing the health of affected children. While many people have only encountered spirometers in clinical settings, there are a number of digital models available for home use. When surveying the market we found the current offerings lacking kid-friendly ergonomics, intuitive controls, and clear information presentation. Curio2 takes a new approach by paring a friendly spirometer design with a companion mobile app that takes full advantage of the now ubiquitous smart phone to provide better usability, customization, and data management.
With a compact and intuitive design, Curio2 syncs with the companion smart phone app to tests and document lung capacity. Designed as a home solution, Curio2 helps parents easily and accurately monitor their child’s lung health.
The companion mobile app guides users through the testing experience, ensuring the highest level of personal comfort and information accuracy. Customizable animated modules display test progress while entertaining the user. Test results are displayed in a clear, easy-to-read format that incorporates several informative options for data visualization and modes of comparison. Data can be compared over time and easily shared with a doctor. Curio2 features a modular design that allows for painless cleaning, as well as a compact, unobtrusive form factor for travel or storage.
