Description

This first edition Home Spirometry is initially made for parents of children suffering from asthma or other respiratory illnesses.

It came about so parents can keep record, share with health personnel and discover negative data as early as possible.

Our goal is to make this application user-friendly for all respiratory related data, but as of now all you need is a measuring tape!

Note: The App shows centimeters in the graph, but you can also use a measuring tape with inches.
