The Smart Choice For Measuring Lung Function At Home

The MIR SmartOne® is a low-cost, home spirometer for self-monitoring that offers a basic level of lung function screening using Bluetooth technology to connect to a smart phone or tablet.

It is ideal for people who would benefit from home assessment of lung function, such as those with asthma, cystic fibrosis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). 

Using the SmartOne® app (iOS or Android) users can record PEF (peak expiratory flow- the maximum speed of the air  exhaled as hard as possible after filling the lungs completely) and FEV1 ( volume of air expelled during the first second of the same exhalation) from the comfort of their own home in real time.

The results can then be emailed electronically as a PDF to a health care professional.

The SmartOne® uses the same bi-directional digital turbine technology found in other MIR spirometers, offering a higher level of performance and accuracy than a conventional peak flow meter. It meets the ATS/ERS 2019 standard as well as ISO 26782 (for Spirometry) and ISO 23747 (for PEF).

In addition to displaying the PEF and FEV1 measurements the app will calculate a Normal Base Line Value based on the users age, weight, origin height and sex.

Three tests are performed per measurement session, after which the SmartOne app automatically selects the highest value and compares it with the users Baseline Value assigning a traffic light colour to it which is then displayed with the test result.

The results are stored in the App making it easy to track trends over a period of time.

By using the SmartOne® on a regular basis changes and patterns can be monitored by the user and their healthcare professional and appropriate treatment taken if needed.

NICE have published a Medtech Innovation Briefing (MIB96) on the SmartOne for measuring lung function which is available on their website.
