Inhaler design - your help and input please

Postby Johnculmer on Tue Nov 16, 2010 1:33 am

Hi. For a design task i am set to design an inhaler which is suitable for recycling or to be reusable. I am aware that the current products available are typically disposed of as household waste and when you consider hundreds of millions are manufactured every year this is not ideal
I am trying to find out how asthma sufferers live there life with their inhaler etc, what you would like to see in a reusable/refillable inhaler before you switch over from your standard one. Any information and help you could give would be great and hugely beneficial to my project. If you could try and answer some of the following questions as well it would be very much appreciated.

How do you currently dispose of your inhalers?
How long does your inhaler typically last?
How many do you have at any one time?
Are you keen to recycle?
Would you be interested in a reusable inhaler?
What would you like to see in a new design?

And any other useful info you could give.

Many thanks

John
