Title

RAS-Q: Bringing care home for COPD patients

Concept

HomeCare@COPD will improve intensive care at home for people with lung-disease by using patient insights to enhance RAS-Q, the so-called “lung in a backpack”. The world’s first portable respiratory assist device for long-term COPD treatment, RAS-Q was developed with support from EIT Health. This project will make the product even better suited to home use.
