Below are two INCA graphs from a participant in our INCA Sun Study

 

Graph 1: Prior to this month the participant had received standard inhaler education. Using INCA technology we identified a 12% error rate and poor timings. The participant was educated based on this. 

Graph 2: Prior to this month the participant was educated using the INCA technology. The error rate is now 4% and the timings are much more regular.

This improvement in inhaler technique and timings leads to better control of asthma and improved quality of life.

Ever Wondered what it looks like to take your inhalers the correct time, frequency & with minimal errors every day? 

We use our INCA Technology to give patients this information and to use this to re educate them in correct inhaler usage to develop life long inhaler habits.

This patient took their inhaler twice a day everyday. 

This patient took their inhaler at the correct time every day & had minimal errors. Our INCA Technology also categorises the most common error patients make when taking their inhaler. This allows us to give an individualised care plan.
