What is Kamu

KAMU™ is an evidence-based, medical-grade service for people with asthma developed with, and for, its users.

KAMU uses a specially developed spirometer that works with your smart phone. It makes monitoring your lungs simple and convenient so it’s simple to optimize your treatment, such as your use of medication, while predicting and preventing asthma symptoms.

The KAMU service is based on medical research; tracking asthma is a major step towards managing it yourself. Monitoring your condition makes it easier to work closely with your General Practitioner and, through sharing your anonymised data, to help other asthma patients in the KAMU community.

Through its user network KAMU gathers information on external factors, such as cold weather and changes in air quality, that can affect asthma. That allows us to provide alerts to you as a user so you can stay a step ahead of your condition and keep surprises to a minimum.

KAMU helps you to feel better, reducing unnecessary visits to your GP and the hospital, while alerting you early to potential problems.

And, long term, our gathering of population-level (anonymised) big data will allow for new analysis and insights into asthma trends and triggers that will speed up future research and treatments.

About Asthma

If you suffer from Asthma you’re not alone. As air pollution worsens Asthma is becoming more common. Roughly one in every 11 people in the United States and Europe is currently managing the condition. If those figures are extrapolated worldwide there could be more than 600 million people globally having to cope with the same condition as you.

But being one of so many is also potentially a great advantage. By sharing data through KAMU, users can help build a clearer picture of the disease. That means not just better data for medical researchers and doctors, but ever-improving guidance for  staying healthy together with crowd-sourced alerts to potential problems caused by weather, pollution or other external factors.

And with KAMU you always control your data, share only what you choose through our secure and anonymised network. And, together with your family doctor or specialist, you can put that data to good use by ensuring that your care is guided by the clearest possible picture of your health and that your medicine intake is optimized so you take the right amount at the right time.

Asthma isn’t unbeatable. There are plenty of good reasons to find better ways of reducing its impact, and eventually a cure. Tens of millions of working days are lost every year to the condition, it costs billions of dollars to treat annually and reduces the quality of life of everyone who has to live with it or support someone who does.

Together you, KAMU and doctors around the world are going to bring better treatments ever closer.
