AirLane™ is a low cost adapter that plugs into conventional incentive spirometry and positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy devices. Our patent pending design collects both the airway flow and head orientation of the patient, sending telemetry to linked devices over a Bluetooth Smart® connection. AirLane™ can be quickly disassembled for easy and effective sterilization.
Our games are designed to use the telemetry that is collected in AirLane™ in fun and engaging ways to improve both the quality and quantity of exercises performed by the patient. DragonKeeper™ is our first respiratory therapy game and is designed for children between 5 and 12 years of age. A selection of “Dragon Trials” educates and encourages children in the proper use of their incentive spirometers while “Dragon Challenges” allows play against other patients and helps to retain long-term interest.
Telemetry that is collected during gameplay is forwarded to a cloud based service called ClincBox™. ClincBox™ saves and analyzes pulmonary telemetry and presents the data back to the clinician in a fast and easy to understand dashboard in our AirRN™ mobile and Web app. We also support forwarding data directly into the health care provider's electronic records.
Any patient who is immobile and/or suffering chest pain is at risk for developing respiratory complications. Incentive spirometers and positive expiratory (PEP) devices such as the Acapella® have both been shown to be effective both as preventatives and treatments, but only if used properly and frequently as prescribed.
Although our focus has been on pediatric populations, we are expanding our scope and have begun developing products for seniors as well. Elderly populations, especially those in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, suffer from pneumonia at much higher rates than do children. Compliant Games is working to offer a cost effective preventative to these seniors that will help them to stay healthy and avoid respiratory disease.
Facilitating the use of an incentive spirometer is often labor intensive for nurses and respiratory therapists. Therapists must train the patient in how to use the spirometer, then gather the data from the patient each day for entry into the electronic medical record. Entering this data is often time consuming and inefficient for health care professionals who must juggle multiple patient care responsibilities. Compliant Games does all of these things for the clinician automatically.
While our games encourage patients to use respiratory therapy as prescribed, the system also streamlines the data collection process, and needs no intervention by a nurse or respiratory therapist. Therapists can now review patient data at a glance using either their own in-house EMR or our AirRN™ app. Our AirRN™ dashboard offers a fast and simple overview of patient compliance and pulmonary health trends.
