Air 2.0

Your wellness companion

Individual Project

- Project Duration : 2 weeks

Pulmonary fibrosis is a lung condition with scarring and breathing difficulties. While there is no cure, you can manage the symptoms, and that's where Air 2.0 comes in. It is specifically designed to assist and support individuals with pulmonary fibrosis in their journey to improve breathing and enhance overall quality of life.




Patients suffering from pulmonary fibrosis often experience stress and anxiety due to the limited information available about the disease. Depending on the severity, they may require oxygen storage at all times.

To maintain fitness, individuals must remain physically active, adhere to their prescribed medications, and consistently engage in respiratory exercises. 


The concept involved creating a product that doesn't have a medical appearance or feel, but instead engages the patient and provides a sense of comfort.

Prototype in use

The design concept focused on keywords like sound frequency, music, breathing exercises, portability, and anxiety reduction to create a product that is both engaging and comforting for the user.

Air 2.0 is a unique breathing device that generates sound based on finger placement, similar to playing a wind instrument.

Prototype in use

The product comprises three interchangeable plug-ins, each with a unique cross-sectional shape. These plugs serve as guides providing motivation for the patient to adjust their breathing force and generate distinct sounds.

Product parts

When air is blown into the windway, it directs the airflow to generate a flat sheet of air that travels over the sound hole. This mechanism, referred to as an "air reed," shares similarities with the way ocarinas are played.

Lung Fibrosis: What is it?

The term "pulmonary fibrosis" refers to the presence of scar tissue in the lungs. In addition to the challenges posed by the scarring, this condition affects the process of breathing and the transfer of oxygen into the bloodstream.

  • Pulmonary fibrosis causes lung scarring and breathing difficulties.

  • Oxygen transfer into the bloodstream is impaired due to stiffened lungs.

  • Treatment can slow down the progression, but no cure exists to reverse the scarring.

  • The condition worsens over time, with variable rates of progression.

  • Differentiating pulmonary fibrosis from COPD can be challenging due to similar symptoms.

What is Lung Fibrosis?

The symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis tend to develop gradually and get slowly worse over time.


Symptoms can include:

• shortness of breath

• a persistent dry cough

• tiredness

• loss of appetite and weight loss

• rounded and swollen fingertips (clubbed fingers)

Courses in pulmonary rehabilitation are usually held locally and involve:

• physical activity

• breathing exercises

• advice on nutrition
