Airflowy is a respiratory health manufacturing company headquartered in Menlo Park, California.[1][2] The company’s technology is used to monitor and measure lung function for patients with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma,[3] chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis.[4] Airflowy is primarily known for its development of a pocket spirometer which allows lung function to be measured by the patient remotely.[5]

Airflowy’s focus is on offering a new generation of minimally invasive health tech solutions targeting respiratory illnesses in both children and adults.[6] The privately held company is the brainchild of Rhianon Black, considered one of the youngest female entrepreneurs in the HealthTech industry. She has been featured in MSN’s Women Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2021 and Under 30 CEO Rising Entrepreneurs in 2021.[7][8]

Airflow has attracted media attention for its unique strides in the healthcare industry and has been featured in Marketwatch,[9][10] Thrive Global,[11] Medium,[12] Yahoo Finance,[13][14][15] The Odyssey Online, Disrupt Magazine,[16] Latestly,[17] as well as Buzz Feed.[18][19]

History

Airflowy was established in 2019 as a health tech startup by Rhiannon Black.[20] She was inspired to design a more effective spirometer, a device used to measure air capacity in the lungs. Black had firsthand experience with spirometry since infancy and regarded the current gadget to be outdated and unimaginative, so she set out to improve it. The company uses remote technologies and telemedicine solutions to assist patients in better controlling their respiratory health and reduce the burden for the healthcare professionals as well.[21]

Airflowy’s imminent future objectives are to expand its strategic partnerships with insurance plan providers, research hospitals, healthcare professionals, and pharmaceutical companies.[22][23]

Products

The first Airflowy respiratory health solution is a Bluetooth-enabled pocket spirometer that allows people to evaluate lung function and track FEV% scores using a mobile smart app.[24] The results of the analysis can be exported and securely shared with the patient's primary care physician.[25] This company’s solution is designed to reduce the burden on trained healthcare professionals, increase testing accuracy, and lead to better patient outcomes.[26]

Funding

On October 13, 2021, Airflowy closed its seed funding round led by Global VC Partners.

Awards

Founder, Rhiannon Black has received recognition as an MSN Women Entrepreneurs to Watch in 2021 list along with being featured as an Under 30 CEO Rising Entrepreneurs in 2021.[27][28] She is also a frequent TEDx speaker known for addressing issues related to the challenges of being a young entrepreneur in the healthcare industry.[29]
