Fostair® Patient Support App
For adult patients on maintenance therapy for asthma or COPD.
Helping your patients get the most benefit from their Fostair treatment.
Why use the app?
The Fostair Patient Support App is a new tool for HCPs to help improve device technique and adherence in adult patients on maintenance therapy for asthma or COPD.
This easy-to-use app is designed to help your patients improve their device technique and adherence.
Once your patient has downloaded this easy-to-use app onto their smartphone, it can be used as a training aid by you to teach them correct device technique and is an easy way for them to keep an eye on their device technique and identify patterns in their dose taking.
And by sharing information collected by the app with you during their consultations, you can provide appropriate guidance to help your patient improve their technique and adherence to treatment where needed.
- Dose-due reminders
Receive ‘dose due’ reminders to help improve adherence
- Dose tracker
Record doses as they take them and review their dose history over time to recognise patterns in dose taking
View ‘milestones’ of consecutive days where all doses have been taken
- Motivational messages

- Record/review technique
Record their device technique to review, rate against a best practice example and share during consultations with you
