Ximedica

Asthma & COPD Management

Gecko Health Innovations approached Ximedica with a prototype device that added intelligence to inhalers. Currently known as CareTRx™ the device is part of a cloud-based solution designed to simplify chronic respiratory disease management, connecting patients and caregivers through remote monitoring and real-time adherence tools.

Challenge:

To take an idea for a smart device from concept to clinical trial.

Solution:

Ximedica worked closely with Gecko Health to identify development direction. Once concepts had been down-selected low fidelity prototypes were created and placed in the hands of user for early evaluation, proving demand for the product. Employing this feedback a solution was developed that was then fully designed, engineered and tooled.

Results:

Ximedica successfully delivered an integrated solution that incorporated Gecko’s software, firmware, hardware and mobile app with a commercial grade cap device. Human use builds for clinical trials are currently underway. Gecko Health Innovations was acquired by Teva Pharmaceuticals in September 2015.
