The unique Vitalograph AIM™ (Aerosol Inhalation Monitor) is designed to assist medical practitioners in training subjects to use their inhaler correctly. Mastery of the correct technique will support more accurate drug delivery and good patient compliance, resulting in better disease management and fewer visits to medical professionals.
I was lecturing and chairing a day on inhaler devices for respiratory physicians. We had a few of the new AIM devices available and these were great in helping us demonstrate correct inhaler device technique; and to provide the doctors with a 'hands-on' opportunity to learn how to do so themselves.

The advantage of the AIM device is that it estimates which part of the lung the drug will be delivered to, dependent upon how the patient inhales; this is therefore a really useful means of training patients to use their inhalers properly, and should be an essential part of a respiratory clinician’s kit in the future if we are to improve compliance and concordance in our patients.
