Product Development Update November 2018.

Professor Bruce Thompson discusses the unmet need for Respiri’s revolutionary asthma monitoring solution.


Respiri’s innovative devices and apps use digital wheeze detection and measurement technology, replacing outdated and difficult-to-use instruments for lung function testing such as peak flow meters.


Respiri’s clinically proven patented technology is used in major hospitals in UK, Europe, USA, Japan, Korea and Australia.


Respiri operates in an industry subset of the globally attractive health and technology sectors and is well positioned as one of the few companies in the world producing the next wave of consumer focused technology for complex disease management.


Our unique proprietary Acoustic Respiratory Monitoring (ARM™) technology records airway sounds to detect continuous adventitious breath sounds (CABS) and measure the extent of wheezing caused by airway obstruction.

Respiri devices work like a stethoscope, utilizing contact sensors to acquire breath sounds at the windpipe (trachea).


Respiri Limited (ASX:RSH) is an Australian owned company with revolutionary smart tools to empower people with asthma and improve outcomes. For over 330 million people worldwide, the simple act of breathing can be a terrifying daily ordeal. Asthma affects quality of life, productivity at work and school and at its worse, still kills. Backed by over twenty years of research by respiratory specialists, and with first-move advantage, Respiri offers an over-the-counter monitoring solution that will help people manage asthma in ways that have never been available before.


Wheezing is a sign of airway inflammation, but it can be hard to detect, particularly in young children. wheezo can help by giving you an objective reading of your child’s wheeze rate, simply by holding him to their windpipe.

New app for asthma sufferers

About one in nine Australians – 2.7 million people – suffer from asthma, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. At least 421 people died from the disease in 2015 and the mortality rate is stubbornly hard to shift.
Medical technology innovator Respiri aims to change this with a new connected device, dubbed Wheezo, which records breath sounds to detect and measure ‘‘wheeze rate’’ – the extent of the coarse whistling sound produced when the airways are narrowed and inflamed.
