The PiKo-1 is one of the world's most sophisticated tools for managing asthma at home
Unlike traditional mechanical meters, which only measure peak flow, the electronic PiKo-1 also measures FEV1, considered by many asthma specialists to be a more reliable indicator of an impending asthma attack. The advanced functions of the PiKo-1 are available at a price comparable with mechanical meters.
Recognized as the Best Over-the-Counter and Self Care Product at the US Medical Design Excellence Awards in 2003, PiKo-1 provides the most accurate peak flow measurement when compared to mechanical peak flow meters and is ATS/EU scale compliant.
