Description

Exheale is the first app of its kind designed for patients with COPD. This app coaches users through a specific type of therapeutic breathing exercise in order to promote deep breathing. Exheale seeks to improve the quality of life of COPD patients who are unable to attend pulmonary rehabilitation, as well as reinforce the training already learned by those who attend. Although Exheale is not intended for the treatment or cure of any disease, the app seeks to provide a portable and therapeutic alternative that can potentially prevent complications that come with
having COPD and other related conditions such as asthma, emphysema, or chronic bronchitis.

Exercises
The main and operative feature of the app is also the main page. The current version of Exheale focuses on a type of breathing exercise designed to coach users to develop a breathing technique that helps promote deep breathing based on defined inhale to exhale ratios, therefore potentially strengthening respiratory muscles over
time. Audio coaching is provided in order to help the user perform the exercise correctly. The breathing exercise has several inhale to exhale ratios and levels of difficulty. After every performance of a repetition of the exercise, the app provides feedback on how well the user performed the breathing exercise through audio analysis. Depending on the user’s comfort with the exercise, they will move through the levels and ratios.

Reports
The reports section of the app provides the daily, weekly, and monthly scores attained with the performance of the breathing exercise. As mentioned previously, after the performance of a rep of the exercise, the user is given feedback. This feedback comes in qualitative form, as well as in the form of a score out of 100. These scores are stored in the Reports section so that the user can track their progress over time.

Achievements
The achievements section of the app serves to provide encouragement for the user. In this section, the user can check if they have completed their daily goal as well as
track their daily goal streak. The daily goal is set when a user creates their profile, and it is the amount of sets/repetitions a user wishes to complete daily, based on
their ability or experience with the app. A set consists of 10 repetitions of the breathing exercise, regardless of the level or breathing ratio performed.

Other Features
A Tutorial on how to perform the therapeutic breathing exercise is available to the user at any time through the main menu. The tutorial is also automatically shown to
the user when first signing in. There is a Profile section, which allows the user to access or change profile settings
and information. The user’s profile is first created when signing in for the first time. There is a Theme feature, which serves to allow the user to change the background
theme of the exercise page.

Ratings and Reviews

Great!

Migz345

This app coaches you with a pretty good type of exercise for deeper breathing using phonetics. Very similar to pursed lips breathing, but sort of an original technique. I really like how it gives you scores on how well you perform the breathing and has pretty good data tracking over days/weeks/months. Good overall design. Great for a first version of the app.
