Abstract

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a serious lung disease that causes difficulty in breathing. COPD patients require lung function examinations and perform breathing exercises on a regular basis in order to manage and be more aware of their health status. In this paper, we designed and developed a mobile-phone based system for lung function diagnosis, called mCOPD. Besides enabling accurate COPD examinations at home, the mCOPD system also offers a video-game based guidance system for breathing exercises. We evaluated mCOPD in controlled and uncontrolled environments with 40 subjects. The experimental results show that our system is a promising tool for remote medical treatment of COPD.
