Chronic respiratory diseases, the third leading cause of global mortality, claimed over  4 million lives in 20191. In the US and Japan, these diseases impose a heavy economic burden,  with healthcare spending totaling US$170.8 billion2(2016) and ¥1.5 trillion (2019) respectively.  This burden is particularly pronounced among the elderly population, who often require  frequent monitoring and face barriers to access due to the uneven distribution of physicians  between urban and rural areas34

AeviceMD is a Singapore HSA-approved and US FDA-cleared patient management  platform for chronic respiratory disease management, featuring a smart wearable stethoscope  suitable for all ages. The platform continuously monitors for biomarkers of interest such as  wheezing and early signs of exacerbation. By providing healthcare professionals with patients’  longitudinal data and the capability to utilize a remote stethoscope on their patients, the  

AeviceMD enables comprehensive lung health assessments to be conveniently conducted  from the patient’s homes.
