Company Summary

Current technology for monitoring lung function in the home requires people with asthma or COPD to follow strict protocols for collecting information. Our flagship product, the FeatherTone-FOT™, will allow our customers to breath normally as information about their lung function is acquired. Daily monitoring will reduce the severity of exacerbations, yielding fewer deaths, emergency room visits and hospitalizations.
