Sparo Labs Launches Wing to Give Peace of Mind to People with Asthma
ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI — Sparo Labs, a digital health startup based in downtown St. Louis, has launched sales of its flagship product, Wing®. Wing is the first over-the-counter, FDA-cleared smartphone sensor for measuring and tracking lung function. This means anyone can purchase Wing – no prescription necessary – through the Wing website at www.mywing.io to proactively manage asthma or their respiratory conditions.
Wing is a pocket-sized sensor and cloud-connected app that provides peace of mind to parents of children with asthma. For children, asthma is the #1 condition causing ER visits, hospitalizations, and missed school. Asthma is currently managed reactively as many people struggle to recognize early warning signs of an asthma attack until they are having trouble breathing and it may already be too late. However, almost every asthma attack, ER visit, hospitalization, and death due to asthma is preventable.
