About

ezOxygen can detect your respiratory system parameter by connecting your smartphone or iPad. It will upload the data to the cloud, and help you manage your sport performance and lung’s health condition 24 hourly.   

  • General Use 
  •  

We would like to introduce you this stylish wearing device ezOxygen that only weights 102g. It is a durable and portable device that can be easily cleaned and suitable for outdoor using. 

ezOxygen is a digital “breather” connected via Wifi to your smart devices (phone or pad). It monitors your breathing condition 24 hourly. Our heart (Cardiovascular System) is like the body’s engine, for instance, while our lungs (Respiratory System) are the oxygen-exchanging zone for food oxidation and body’s energy supply. The respiratory tract, from nose to bronchial and alveolus, is part of body’s fundamental organ and system, just like automobile’s exhaust system. Air and oxygen can be exchanged in lungs through breath. However, many factors can affect our respiratory process. Organic solvent, air pollution, fine particles and food allergies…… All these can challenge your respiratory system and even your overall health condition.   

There are three major respiratory parameters that are most related to your respiratory condition:   

These lung function parameters can all be improved through sports training. As for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease group, controlling their disease is equal significant to the management of their medicine.   

  • Sport  

When people start their regular sports training, they are expecting regular sports can help improve their health condition. Now you can expect it and examine your respiratory system condition through ezOxygen, and evaluate the real effect in the APP. 

We strongly recommend you use ezOxygen before sports. We can provide you information about your respiratory condition and the outdoor air quality for your reference. Fine particles can directly affect your respiratory tract sensitivity. You won’t want doing sports to harm your lungs while training your muscles. Even for those who have respiratory disease, they can use ezOxygen to monitor their PEF, FEV1, FVC, and take medicine when needed to avoid breathing emergency. FVC represents your daily oxygen storage in sports, while PEF and FEV1 are related to your respiratory tract muscles’ capacity of instant-provided energy. When you have better FVC, you will have longer air exchange duration to let you swim faster. During sports like basketball, jogging and marathon, we all need stronger respiratory system to support us to successfully complete the challenge, and even win the champion. In the future, we will add more functions to ezOxygen to help you analyze distance, time or sports mode. Besides, other bracelet or devices will meet you to provide overall suggestions on lungs and muscle training and cardiovascular system.    

  • Singing / Speech  

When we make sounds out of mouth, we need to use muscle to control our vocal cord’s vibration, and we need airflow to push these sound waves to the open air. 

FVC is the air storage zone every time when you sing or speak. You can see its effects on hiphop songs and longer lyrics. That’s why you need better FVC to sing better and even become a singer. Of course, better FVC helps your voice be louder and persuasive in certain conversation.    

  • Health Care  

Some people that have respiratory tract disease may worry that over sport could cause breath difficulty or asthma. Now you can evaluate your PEF before and after sports on ezOxygen and take medicine properly if needed. Some doctors indicate through research that, if COPD patients have singing training class weekly, it will help improve their lung function and life quality. When someone is caught a cold, he/she may have difficulty in breath due to the over produced mucus caused from respiratory infection, and this will directly effect his/her PEF. We can also use ezOxygen to monitor PEF’s recovery, let you better know your respiratory tract conditions and help you build confidence for knowing the right time to get back to sports. You can send your friends, family or partner ezOxygen as a gift. And also, under his/her permission, you can better know his/her respiratory data and condition, and even take part in our coins collecting activity in the APP games. The coin exchange activity for other incentive in the game will be launched this year. We hope these bonus can surprise you more. We also have good promotion plan which can let you sponsor over one device, to get you and the people you care more closer and healthy.

We use the public data with high credibility to collect the GPS-based air information for your reference (http://aqicn.org/map/), and help you to make decision for indoor or outdoor activity at the moment.    

  

We care you, and help you to care beyond yourself. With ezOxygen, caring them is no more a long way to go.   

  

We use top cloud servers to backup and sync your data, you can review any of them on the screen of your device.   

  

We could provide the teaching film to show how to use the ezOxygen breathe checker. 

With a team consisting of doctor, nurse, and scientists, we start this project from the point of a hypothesis “the voice volume may indicate the airflow rate”. Starting from a simple idea, and all the way to pilot production, we have already spent over 2 years finishing at least 10 thousands audio analysis. Our unique creative selling point is to use ultrasound instead of hearable voice on ezOxygen. This innovation avoids the background noise’s disturbance.     

Tifa is our RD director, having plenty of professional experiences in drug development regulation. Duncan and Dr. Yen help a lot in project management, software and hardware integration. Besides, they also contribute to finding angel investment. Susan gave us a hand to prepare the ID and electronics manufacture. She is co-founder of a Taiwan IPO medical device company that runs more than 20 years. The reason why we start this Kickstarter proposal is that we hope to make this product better and apply it to market as soon as possible via crowd-funding platform. And we would like to pay more attention in product development and customers’ needs.   

ezOoxygen RD team is located in Taiwan. The adequate IT suppliers and well-established industrial chain make it possible for an idea to become true products. If possible, we would like to have a live show at Kickstarter to help you better understand our laboratory and technology.       

  

Our prototype is currently permitted to use Praat (open source audio analysis software) for data analysis after breath test. The analysis includes PEF, FEV1 and FVC, with an accuracy of 1/10000 sec, and pass the validation of FDA approved spirometer in laboratory. The algorithm optimization among electronics, microphone and ultrasound whistle is finished in June 2017. Both iOS and Android version APPs are currently under development. We expect the Android version can be finished in August 2017, and will submit the iOS version to Apple App Store for inspection in the mean time.    

Our first blue-silver version device has already been in the process of mass production. We believe every sponsor will receive the product you ordered in December 2017.

Risks and challenges

By far, we still can’t provide the accurate schedule of our iOS APP, for the reason that Apple Store’s inspection time is uncertain. But what we are sure about is that we will finish the Android version in September 2017 and it will be then open for download on Google Play. We would also like to add further functions and integrate more wearable devices in future application. It is our never-ending job to perfect this product and software.
