The ZEPHYRx™ platform combines incentive spirometry with an engaging selection of breath-driven video games, encouraging more frequent usage, and better patient outcomes.
Better Breathing Can Lead to Healthier Patients
Fun, diverse breathing games keep patients engaged. Patients control the game play with their breath, following on screen prompts to inhale/hold/exhale via the bluetooth connected spirometer. This elicits greater participation and patient adherence to their prescribed respiratory therapy.
Powerful Feedback Loop
ZEPHYRx features over 15 breath-powered games, including golf, slot machines, car racing, and fishing. There's something for everyone. And we use a fully FDA & CE medically cleared device for all game play.
Adapts to your breath capacity
Our games automatically adapt to your current breath capacity. We adjust the difficulty level based on your game play results.
ZEPHYRx works on mobile phones (Apple iPhone & Android) as well as tablets (Apple iPad and Android). Download them from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store!
Results sent to your healthcare team
With your consent we save and transmit the results of your breathing exercises to your electronic health record (EHR) for review by your entire health care team.
Video games increase pain tolerance
As shown in multiple studies, video games increase pain tolerance through active distraction which in turns increases game plan duration.
