FDA 510(k) Class II Device | CE Mark | HIPAA Compliant

cough monitoring RESP biosensor

Symptoms such as cough, wheeze, and crackles are common across several cardiopulmonary and infectious diseases. Patient self-reports, while valuable, may not fully capture the objective reality these symptoms present. The RESP® Biosensor detects the full scope of respiratory symptoms and other insights, providing stronger, quantitative evidence to demonstrate treatment efficacy.

The Next Generation Cough Monitoring Device

Unlock 24-hour clinically accurate and continuous monitoring of cough and lung sounds with the RESP® Biosensor.* Optimized for ease of use at home as part of clinical trials, our device offers:

  • Enhanced Patient Compliance: A wireless, discreet design that respects patient comfort and lifestyle.
  • Rapid, Reliable Data Access: Direct cloud sync facilitates efficient analysis of objective respiratory metrics.
  • Superior and Comprehensive Data: Captures detailed cough and lung sound data, offering insights beyond traditional methods.
