One person dies from asthma in Ireland every week. The buteyko breathing method is seen as a feasible non-pharmacological successful intervention for the treatment of acute asthma. By changing the way we breathe, it has been proven to open airways, improve blood circulation and improve oxygen delivery to the cells of the body, significantly reducing the recurrence and severity of asthma symptoms.
Breasy is a user friendly product-service system that teaches children buteyko breathing through a virtual reality game environment. A belt with a force pressure sensor monitors breathing and controls the VR game allowing for a fun user experience.
