(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 05, 2022 ) The use of mHealth for the diagnosis of rhinitis is currently limited, with a small number of mHealth tools for allergic rhinitis (AR) diagnosis published in peer-reviewed journals. Recent developments in integrated biosensors, wireless communication, and power harvesting techniques generate a new breed of point-of-care devices. However, AR is a very common disease. Any diagnostic device connected to a smartphone (e.g., peak nasal inspiratory flow meters or intranasal biosensors) would need to be inexpensive to be affordable.
