Project description

Spirophone is a medical device with the aim of detecting the symptoms of COPD by measuring signal audio emitted by a whistle adapted for this case. The signal audio is processed by the software and the result is a list of parameters related to respiration (example: FEV1) that could define the presence of a pulmonary obstruction and so the user is suggested to do a medical visit.
The idea is to use a cloud for data storage to do a mass screening to have a statistical studio and to reduce the cost of the therapy in the long term.
