Asthma, Bronchial | Wheeze Detection in Adults During Dynamic Bronchial Situations Measured by PulmoTrack® 2010 With WIM-PC™ Technologies Recording

Asthma, Bronchial research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

The PulmoTrack® 2010 with WIM-PC™ Technologies device, indicated for acoustic pulmonary function measurement that quantifies the presence of wheezing. This study was designed in order to evaluate the efficacy and safety of using the WIM-PC™ device for wheeze detection during dynamic bronchial situations in asthmatic adult.

Study Arms

Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.

1Asthmatic subjects

2Healthy subjects

Study Status

Unknown status

Start Date: June 2009

Completed Date: December 2009


Type: Observational


Primary Outcome: Study success will be declared if one of the following is met: A correlation of at least 0.25 (R2=0.25) will be found between WR and FEV1 measurements; A correlation of at least 0.7 will be found between clinical parameter and WZ measurements.

Secondary Outcome: Evaluation of the safety of using the PulmoTrack® 2010 with WIM-PC™ Technologies for wheeze detection. Safety will be established by lack of adverse events. Since this is a Non Significant Risk (NSR) device serious adverse events are not expected
