An innovative partnership between NuvoAir and London’s Royal Brompton Hospital was launched last year. It allowed patients taking part in the study the freedom to test themselves at home with the Air Nextsimple-to-use spirometer. This hand-held device, when connected to software via Aria - an app exclusively developed by NuvoAir - can accurately measure the state of the patient’s lungs and predict worsening. Once this data has been collected on the Aria app, it can be analysed by the patient and shared remotely with their health care team and the hospital.

Once the results from this study and other independent research were brought together, it revealed some fascinating insights. For example, the study suggests that the Air Next Spirometer and Aria software could help patients with life-long lung health conditions spot any deterioration in their lungs sooner.

“The NuvoAir pilot study at the Royal Brompton has demonstrated that self-testing of lung function has many advantages and is only the start of an innovative way of caring for those with a chronic lung condition,” says Helen Parrott, Associate Director of Rehabilitation and Therapies at the Royal Brompton Hospital and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
