• 3M is developing the intelligent control inhaler

    When you know that up to 94% of inhaler users make mistakes using their devices, you have to think differently. When up to 60% of patients don’t adhere to their medication, you have to ask why. 3M, with its long history of expertise in inhalation, saw the need for a simple, intuitive, connected device that may help reduce mistakes in use, engage patients in self-care, and connect patients with their caregivers. 1 Lavorini et al., 2008.
