The SOLO Medical Inhaler was Designed to Be More Conveniently Carried

The really silly thing is that many people don't carry their medications with them simply because it's a slight inconvenience to do so. The SOLO Medical Inhaler was developed with the goal of assuming an even more portable form than its common L-shaped counterparts do.

Irfan Kachwalla established that it's the crooked shape that makes the piece of clinical equipment particularly annoying to put in a purse or slide into a pocket. He eliminated this problem by giving the casing an adjustable form. It can be configured into a bend for ease of use and then rendered more streamlined the rest of the time.

A clever swiveling system enables the asthma-sufferer to simply twist the tip of the SOLO Medical Inhaler in and out of these two positions. A clip on the side further facilitates the hooking of the apparatus onto one's attire.
