Wheezometer- Ultrasoung Based Respiratory monitoring Device

An innovative cough detector uses acoustic respiratory monitoring (ARM) to detect wheezes, rhonchi, and coughs, aiding the diagnosis of respiratory conditions.

The Wheezometer device is an ultrasound-based cough detector using ARM technology that fits against a patient’s neck, automatically detecting coughs and counts coughing events by detecting both high and low frequency mechanical vibrations in the tracheal area, and then tracking their severity and duration. The device then stores that data or sends it wirelessly to a computer or other logging device. Just 30 seconds of breath sounds are sufficient to use the advanced signal processing algorithms to detect, quantify, and objectively document the presence of wheeze and its extent.
