The aim of the project
The aim of the project is to develop a system for the accurate delivery of inhaled drugs, the main components of which are: 1) a breath-activated smart drug delivery device and 2) a software platform for determining the dose deposited in the airways based on the respiratory parameters measured at the time of delivery and the patient's physiological parameters. The smart device measures the air flow rate through the inhaled drug delivery device and, based on this information, the system automatically activates the delivery device at the time that results in maximum deposition. The software platform uses the measured data and the patient's physiological parameters to determine the amount of drug that will be deposited, allowing the amount of active ingredients that will be deposited in the airways to be estimated immediately after delivery and the therapeutic treatment to be tailored to the individual. Knowing the exact dose delivered is a major advance in the field of inhalation treatments.
