Frustrated by the challenges of giving her young son his daily asthma treatments, Sarah Cota came up with an idea. Why not ease the burden of using a nebulizer by taking away the mask and using it while the child is sleeping?
That's the idea behind the JettPak, the flagship product being developed by Bend, Ore., startup JettStream Inc. It's a hands-free, mask-free add-on for nebulizers currently on the market. Intended to deliver medication to the child while he's sleeping, the base of the device can slide under a pillow or mattress.
