The Rafi-Tone app is designed to make using an inhaler with a spacer easier and more fun for young children with wheeze or asthma symptoms. With guidance from Rafi Robot, the app's star, your child can improve their breathing technique.


Who is it suitable for?

Young children with wheeze or asthma symptoms.

How does it work?

Using an inhaler, spacer and small whistle mask manufactured by Clement Clarke International Ltd, young children can make sure they are taking their medication correctly. If no air leaks from around the mask, it emits a musical tone and Rafi Robot appears to defeat the baddies in the app.

The app tracks when and how effectively the inhaler is used, and the characters interact with the child when they breathe properly.
