Asthma is the most common chronic disease and one of the leading causes of hospitalization for American children. Nearly ten million– or one in seven– kids are affected by asthma. Worrisome for children and parents alike, asthma is also a pressing public health issue, costing the U.S. over $15 billion annually.

GeckoCap has developed mobile, digital, and smart tools that empower children as well as their parents and doctors to better manage asthma medication. GeckoCap’s glowing reminder system helps children build healthy habits and motivates them to take control of their health. With inhaler tracking, GeckoCap can also use inhaler activity to drive game-based experiences that can support managing asthma a collaborative effort, allowing parents and doctors to use games to drive adherence and behavior change in Asthma.
