The purpose of my product RunBud is to combine a wearable fast-acting asthma inhaler with Bluetooth technology and mobile and watch applications to track inhaler usage including the exact mileage point(s) the user administers the inhaler. These usage details, along with the day’s temperature, humidity level and pollen count will be available as daily, weekly and monthly downloadable reports. Users will be able to determine the best days to run based on these reports. The mobile and watch applications will track activity like distance, time and blood oxygen levels during the user’s run. The asthma medication comes in a canister that sits inside of an actuator that has a mouthpiece from which the medication is inhaled. The canister is easily removed from the original actuator and placed into the RunBud wearable inhaler.
