N Tidal – Personal Capnometer
Breathing is one of the body’s vital functions but equipment called Capnometers, which accurately monitor breathing, are large, expensive and inaccurate. Wideblue have created a miniature low cost, hand-held, battery-powered capnometer for the many millions of people with respiratory conditions, such as asthma, COPD, CHF, cystic fybrosis and COVID-19. The N-Tidal device is highly accurate and connects to the internet allowing rapid communication of lung performance to medics and patients.
Statement of the jury
The compact, ergonomic design combined with an app enables patients to control their own breathing and send the results to the doctor, which provides greater security and takes the burden off the health system.
