Given the success of the Aluna iOs app, we’re thrilled to announce that anyone (regardless of OS loyalty) can now track their medication and symptoms. The Aluna Android app is now available for those who want to take control of their lung health and can be downloaded in the Google Play Store.
The Aluna App for Android Devices Is Now Available
Aluna is a portable spirometer and management program designed to help adults and children monitor their lung function and take control of their respiratory health. In the context of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the use of Aluna can reduce the need for in-clinic visits. This may ease the burdens on hospitals and medical facilities while reducing the risk of exposure for patients.
Until now, Aluna was only available to those with Apple devices. However, with the development of the Android app, Aluna is even more accessible to those with chronic lung disease and those suffering from COVID complications.
With the common occurrence of respiratory issues that can make COVID-19 worse, it’s important to track lung health as we manage potential exposure to this virus.
“Amid COVID-19, there is an enormous demand for Aluna and our respiratory health management. We are honored to have received FDA clearance and excited for doctors and patients to experience Aluna’s spirometer, app, and dashboard, which allows doctors to review FEV1 scores in real-time.” – Charvi Shetty, CEO of Aluna
Aluna connects via Bluetooth to transmit a patient’s FEV1% directly to their health care provider. The app also allows patients to self-monitor their scores for changes outside a parameter set by their doctor. These scores can aid a health care professional in the diagnosis of a particular condition or disease. This includes treating COVID-19 related complications. Aluna effectively mimics the spirometry exams typically performed in a doctor’s office.
No Aluna Device? No Problem
If you don’t have an Aluna spirometer yet, you can purchase one from our online store. A representative can help you with any questions you may have regarding either the iOS or Android applications. We’re HSA and FSA eligible, and if you speak to your doctor, you may be able to get Aluna for free.
*COVID-19 is a novel disease, and diagnostic and treatment protocols are still under development. The FDA has previously cleared the Aluna device to provide FEV1 and PEF data to manage certain lung conditions. Although the extent to which FEV1 and PEF data can be used to diagnose or treat COVID-19 has not been established, it is possible that health care providers might find monitoring these parameters a helpful adjunctive (supportive) component in the diagnosis or treatment of COVID-19. In such cases, Aluna with its remote monitoring capabilities might be useful as an adjunctive diagnostic or treatment tool for spot-checking or trend monitoring patients with COVID-19. No assertions about the possible usefulness of the Aluna device in the diagnosis or treatment of COVID-19 have been proven or have been cleared by the FDA.
