Propeller Health is a mobile platform that offers sensors, mobile apps, analytics, and services to support respiratory health management. The HIPAA compliant platform stores users’ data in a cloud computing infrastructure.
The Propeller sensor and mobile application help users learn more about and better manage their asthma, COPD, and respiratory disease. The Propeller sensor attaches to users’ inhalers and wirelessly syncs with their smartphones. It tracks their triggers and symptoms and sends personalized feedback and education to their phones based on the symptoms. Users can see how often they use the medication, and set up medication reminders and alerts.
Propeller community enables users to share their Propeller data with their physician and family members.
Propeller Health is backed by Safeguard Scientifics, The Social+Capital Partnership, California HealthCare Foundation, and other investors. The platform works with organizations such as Dignity Health, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, Amerigroup Florida, and the City of Louisville. The system has been featured in The Economist, Washington Post, Fast Company, Wired, and Scientific American.
Propeller Health has received TEDMED Innovation Showcase, White House Champion of Change, and Bluetooth Breakthrough Product awards.
