Propeller OK'd for Use With Diskus, Respimat Devices
Propeller Health announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given clearance to market its Propeller platform for use with drugs using GlaxoSmithKline's Diskus dry powder inhaler device for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following its clearance for use with drugs using Boehringer Ingelheim's Respimat inhaler for COPD.
Propeller is a digital health platform intended to help patients and physicians better understand asthma and COPD, and help improve the outcomes of these conditions.
