Asthma Inhaler-

Originally modelling the classic ‘ventolin’ inhaler– a common and usually disposable dispenser that has remained largely unchanged for decades. Asthma is an increasingly common medical condition, about 1 in 12 people (about 25 million) have asthma in the United States. As asthma becomes more common, I was curious how this design could be enhanced to better serve users.

I considered a number of avenues; kids, sports, marketing, tech integration – and being an Asthma sufferer myself, tried to address a problem that caters to all – custody. Forever lost, these inhalers – which are essentially life lines – are often found misplaced. Giving the ability to attach the inhaler, be it during a game of sport, a child’s school bag or simply keeping it in the same spot when unused – makes the user more conscious of their Asthma, it’s treatment and how they identify with the illness.

Kids at school often customize their backpacks to not only identify among the masses their possessions, but also identify through the objects they choose to customize with.

The stigma often attached to medical conditions can be negative or 'nerdish' - however, as the statistics continue to drastically increase, we see kids with asthma nearing the majority. How can we make it cooler?
