Respira is an exercise that can help children who have undergone anesthesia or open chest surgery effectively train their respiratory muscles. Respira can practice exhalation and exhalation without changing the blowing position. According to the doctor's suggestion, it can switch to different intensity of breathing training. The front transparent screen displays the game level to improve the children's willingness to practice. The data after practice will be returned to the APP for storage and recording, so that the doctor can check the recovery of the lung and reduce the lung adhesion caused by not daring to breathe normally. Users can also create playing animal characters according to their preferences, so as to add fun and companionship during the practice.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION and Expected Benefits
COMPETITIVE ANAYLSIS and MARKET SCALE
01 88% of people who underwent surgery suffered from pulmonary complications
Studies have shown that 88% of people who undergo upper abdominal surgery will suffer from postoperative pulmonary complications after surgery. The vital capacity may decrease after the operation. During the operation, the body will be stimulated and affect the nerve reflex, which will reduce the muscle tone function of the bronchi, thereby reducing the ventilation of the lungs and affecting the activity of the patient's lung function after the operation.
02 Up to 95% of patients under general anesthesia will develop lung collapse
Up to 95% of the patients under general anesthesia will suffer from lung collapse. The importance of deep breathing exercise is to help lung expansion, increase vital capacity and lung ventilation function, strengthen sputum excretion, and prevent lung complications, such as pulmonary insufficiency, pneumonia, bronchitis, pleuritis, and pulmonary embolism.
03 The rate of COPD in adults with severe asthma in childhood
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is mainly caused by the long-term stimulation of the respiratory tract by dirty air. In severe cases, dyspnea may occur, accounting for 10% of the total mortality rate in Taiwan. Those with severe asthma in childhood will increase the rate of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in adulthood by about 37 times.
04 About 20% of children in Taiwan suffer from asthma
According to the data of the Taiwan Asthma Society, the prevalence rate of asthma in children under 12 years of age is 5.6%. Among them, 73.3% of the patients did not have regular follow-up visits, and 67.2% of the patients did not use prescription drugs for asthma treatment. The hospital recommends practicing breathing to improve chest wall mobility and increase vital capacity.
// DESIGN CONCEPT
Respira can help children after anesthesia or thoracotomy to train breathing muscles. They can exhale without changing the blowing position. The front transparent screen displays the game level. Create characters according to their preferences, improve their practice willingness, and send the practice data back to the APP for records, so that doctors can check the lung recovery and reduce the lung adhesion.
// PRODUCT FEATURES
01 Game Experience
Different levels can be selected according to the intensity of exhalation and inspiration suggested by the doctor, so as to achieve correct seconds of exhalation and inspiration and correct angle control.
02 Sphere Feedback
The visual sphere feedback can tell whether the practice is in place. By sensing on the display screen, you can show the appearance of the fire circle on the screen, increase children's visual stimulation, and enhance the fun of practice and play.

// TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
Optical waveguide is defined as an optical system that can realize field folding and restoration and transmit losslessly through total reflection
optical waveguide system includes three parts: coupling, waveguide and coupling. The specific process is to cut a complete picture with a large angle of view into several pieces, and then fold them to form a thin strip of field of view, so that it can be coupled through a small optical lens, and the coupled part will restore the cut picture completely.
The wave transmits light to the front of the eye through the total reflection principle and then releases it. The display glass is made into a fence through holographic interference technology, coated with a layer of film, and then refracts the light into the eye. The pupil distance can be adjusted according to the user's needs, so that the image imaging distance is 1~2 meters of the eye.
// MARKET SCALE
Children with congenital heart disease, pneumonia and other diseases who need to be operated on after thoracotomy should practice breathing before and after the operation. In the future, It will plan for children who need breathing training due to asthma or lung damage caused by epidemic or accident.
About 500 children prevent postoperative complications, and 15% of children with asthma who need to practice breathing.
Overall, the incidence rate is 1 funnel chest deformity per 300 newborns, which requires surgical treatment. According to the calculation, it can help about 500 children to prevent postoperative complications every year, and 15% of children with asthma need to practice breathing regularly.
// EXPECTED BENEFITS
01 The use of respiratory trainers can reduce the incidence of complications
Among postoperative pulmonary complications, pulmonary distension imperfection and pneumonia are the most common. Studies have found that any kind of pulmonary expansion exercise treatment can prevent postoperative complications more than inaction. Within 48 hours after surgery, the patient's vital capacity decreased to 55% of that before surgery. The use of respiratory trainers can reduce the incidence of complications by 85%.
02 Improve ineffective breathing in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
The hospital respiratory therapist said that the respiratory muscle trainer was favored by many doctors, physical therapists and even athletes. Strengthening lung endurance through resistance training can improve the ineffective breathing of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, reduce the accumulation of carbon dioxide in the lungs, and help to improve lung function and relieve the symptoms of dyspnea.
