dc.description.abstract Asthma is the most common unpreventable chronic condition among children under the age of 18, affecting 6.3 million (CDC). The number of children with asthma in America increases exponentially every year, yet inhalers have not been designed or redesigned in decades to fulfill the physical, emotional, and mental needs of a child. Asthma is the leading cause for child hospitalization, emergency room visits, and missed school days among ages 5-17. Asthmatic Children: The most vulnerable to this chronic disease and are hospitalized the most out of all age groups (ALA). Children suffer from more attacks than adults and rely on their medication heavily to recover. Metered Dose Inhalers (Emergency Inhaler): The simplest and most accessible medical device used to treat asthma, but they have not been designed to fulfill the needs of a child. For decades, they have been the standard despite their inconvenient design, but what if there was a better way to treat asthma? en_US
