Consistent Improper Use of Dry Powder Inhalers

9/1/16 A study of 54,354 inhaler user from 1975 to 2014 shows 31% of patients with asthma or COPD use their inhalers correctly, 41% had acceptable use and 31 % had poor use technique. The inability to use the inhalers correctly came from bad coordination, incorrect preparation, speed and/or depth of inspiration and post inhalation breath hold. This poor technique continues to be a major issue among both patients and health care professionals. Correcting this issue is key in combating lung related diseases. The data suggests that there remains an unmet need for simpler, easier to use inhaler devices.
That is where the DoseOne™ Single Dose Powder Inhaler comes in! This patented inhaler (US Patent #7,832,399 B2 & 8,360,057 B2) is a single use disposable dry powder inhaler that is

– Vaccine-ready
– Easy to Carry & package for epidemic/pandemic necessity
– Fills a unique niche in the dry powder inhaler market
– Achieves new demanding regulatory requirements previously only achievable using complicated device designs such as:
