OPlay—A Medical Product for Children with Asthma


OPlay makes administering asthma medication, monitoring children and their symptoms, and recording data a seamless and friendly process. It integrates the playing of a musical instrument with the use of an asthma spacer and a peak flow measurement tool. When a child uses OPlay, it senses actions and plays corresponding melodies. Different music pieces provide feedback during each step. The use of the device is also guided by a light that facilitates the process. OPlay makes tedious asthma therapy a joyful recital presented by children, making treatment more interesting and psychologically accessible to children.
