A twenty-two-year-old English student has invented a unique inhaler for people with bronchial asthma. It is so small that it can even fit in a wallet or breast pocket of a shirt.
The inhaler developed by Adam Bates of Oxfordshire (moderate asthma patient) has a thickness of only 6 mm. Moreover, it holds from 50 to 100 doses of the drug, which are enough for at least 3-4 weeks of use.
“I have several acquaintances who do not carry inhalers with them because they cannot hide them in their pockets, ” the inventor told the BBC correspondent. – Once I witnessed a case when one of my friends started an asthmatic attack right in the disco, and the people around could not help him – no one had any medicine with them. Therefore, I developed my own mini-inhaler, designed just for such people.”
