Why we are developing the 3M™ Intelligent Control Inhaler

Product in development. Not available for commercial sale.

  • When you know that up to 94% of inhaler users make mistakes using their devices1, you have to think differently. When up to 60%2 of patients don’t adhere to their medication, you have to ask why. 3M, with its long history of expertise in inhalation, saw the need for a simple, intuitive, connected device that may help reduce mistakes in use, engage patients in self-care, and connect patients with their caregivers.
