Hello, I'm a design student at the University of Leeds, and have chosen this year to re-design asthma inhalers. My project is in the very early stages at the moment and I would appreciate any help and advice any one can give me, or any problems you have faced. My idea is to make it easier for a child to be more independent using an inhaler.
I have spoken to a few parents of children who have asthma and they have said that at times they are unsure if their child is taking their dose correctly. Their child can often be quite frustrated and agitated, especially before bed, when using their inhaler. I wondered if this is common problem?
Any other problems you could bring to my attention would be very much appreciated
