Inhaler Training

The Aerosol Inhalation Monitor (AIM) is an effective tool for assessing inhaler technique and for training subjects in DPI or MDI inhaler use to help ensure effective drug delivery.

This easy-to-use device is an excellent way to ensure that subjects leave the clinic knowing how to effectively self-administer the correct dose.

The device measures inspiratory flow rate, duration, breathhold and MDI activation, all of which are critical to ensure drug is not wasted and subjects get the best from the prescribed dose. The AIM can be used for training with a variety of inhaler types, MDI, DPI and custom inhaler types are also possible.

The unique Vitalograph®AIM™ is designed to assist in training subjects to use their inhaler correctly. Mastery of the correct technique supports more accurate drug delivery, good patient compliance and reduced variability.

The AIM device is manufactured by Vitalograph to complement clinical trials where other Vitalograph devices are used to capture in-clinic or at-home respiratory endpoints.

It is especially useful for device-handling studies and those where the drug is expected to have marginal improvements, where administration of the drug is all the more important.

Device types:

  • MDI
  • DPI
  • Generic
  • Ellipta

Custom inhaler types are also available.
