Amiko uses AI to help asthma sufferers

Amiko LogoAs avid UKHotViews readers will know, we are always interested to hear from UK tech start-ups, particularly those that are innovative, disruptive and punching above their weight in their respective markets. That description certainly fits London-headquartered Amiko Digital Health, which is developing advanced medication sensor technologies and AI powered digital health tools to help asthma patients monitor their health in real-time. In December, the SME both closed a round of funding led by Sanner Ventures and Breed Reply, and won first place in the IBM Watson AI XPRIZE’s annual Milestone Awards – a global competition to create AI systems to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.

Founded in 2014 and led by CEO Duilio Macchi, Amiko has an Italian flavour with R&D laboratories in Milan. It already has commercial, institutional and individual customers in Italy, Germany, France, Spain, UK and the Netherlands. The recent funding will be used to expand its respiratory disease management platform Respiro.

Respiro is a great example of how medical technology and AI can be combined to improve patient outcomes. A medical sensor fits the inhalors that patients are already using to monitor inhalation technique and frequency, capturing parameters such as inhalation flow rate, flow acceleration, inhalation volume and inspiration time. This data flows into Respiro, a platform designed to evolve with therapeutics, patient-reported, behavioural, physiological, and environmental data. The goal is to create a system that uses AI to suggest an optimal path of therapy for each patient; predict and prevent exacerbations in asthma patients; and help to simplify self-management, controlling the disease and improving the patient experience. If this can be achieved, the benefits for patients and healthcare providers should be demonstrable, making Amiko an SME worth watching in the months ahead.
