T-Haler is an instructional and location-aware inhaler for asthma sufferers, designed by UK- and US-based design consultancy Cambridge Consultants. According to the company, 80% of people fail to use their inhaler correctly, resulting in unnecessary hospital admissions.

Using on-board sensors and Wi-Fi, the T-Haler records how the patient uses the inhaler and gives real-time directional feedback on a computer screen. Cambridge Consultants claims that three minutes spent training can increase correct usage by 60%.
