Description

Rafi-Tone is an app designed to help make using an inhaler with a spacer easier and more fun for young children with wheeze or asthma symptoms.

It works alongside the Able Spacer and whistle mask manufactured by Clement Clarke International Ltd (www.clement-clarke.com) and is available on prescription or from your pharmacist.

There is a whistle tone emitted by the mask when correct breathing technique is used.

This happens when there is good breathing with no air leaks around the mask.

When he hears the whistle, Rafi Robot will defeat the baddies.

Developed by a parent and in collaboration with respiratory paediatricians in Manchester Royal Children's Hospital.

** We do not claim any clinical benefit for Rafi-tone.

Do not use Rafi-tone to make medical decisions
Inhaler medication should always be according to guidance by a healthcare professional and under adult supervision.

Only use the app with the whistle mask from Clement Clarke International.

Please read the instructions and view the demo before use.**
