Addable Co., Ltd. is a South Korea-based technology company that has developed a medical device for the rehabilitation industry. The company was founded in 2018 and has patented several of its technologies. It has received several awards, such as the Most Promising Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SMEs) in Chungnam, and the CEO of the company, Sung-Tae Hong, has appeared on the popular Korean TV show Money Today to discuss Addable's product.
The company's product is called Smart Breathe-Air—a handheld portable rehabilitation device for lung capacity training. The company states that with fifteen minutes of use every day, the user can train and strengthen respiratory muscles. The device can aid in recovery after respiratory-related surgery and improve voice control.
Smart Breathe-Air has a replaceable mouthpiece and can be recharged using a C-cable. Users blow into it to increase respiratory strength, and a fan inside the device dictates the difficulty of blowing. Users can choose from fifteen levels of difficulty. The device has an oxygen sensor that can monitor oxygen levels through a thumb sensor.
Users can also play games that are connected to Smart Breathe-Air. The games are available via a mobile application, and users can choose which game depending on their needs. Some games are designed to build endurance, with the characters in the game being controlled by how hard and fast the user is breathing into the device. Another game is designed for more sensitive rehabilitation patients, such as those who have just received surgery and elderly people.
