We are developing ‘Smart Chest Physiotherapy Solutions’ for infants with respiratory diseases to improve their living standards.
Educational guidance kit that enables families to perform daily chest physiotherapy (CPT) sessions correctly and effectively for cystic fibrosis infants.
We aim to ensure correct and effective treatment of chest physiotherapy (CPT), which is actively used in the treatment process of diseases that prevent patients from breathing comfortably by creating negative effects on respiratory system such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF), Bronchiectasis, Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia, SMA Type I. In this sense, as a result of the support we received from ‘Tübitak’, we started our studies in METU Technopolis in 2020.
One of the projects we have developed in this context is the AirCircle project, which allows 3-18 months old babies with CF to perform chest physiotherapy treatment correctly and effectively by their families. With this project, the knowledge and experience of the families regarding chest physiotherapy are increased and the life quality of the patients is increased with effective and correct sessions.
In this sense, our vision is to increase the quality of life and minimize the mortality rates of infants with Cystic Fibrosis between 3-18 months by increasing the awareness of patients’ relatives about chest physiotherapy.
