A UL invention shortlisted for the Enterprise Ireland-Cleveland Clinic Innovation Award 2018
soloPEP is an innovative product for patients with respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis or COPD who need help clearing mucus from their airways.
Designed to disrupt the existing market, where such devices are used typically for months at a time, soloPEP is manufactured from 100% recyclable materials and for daily use.
This removes the need to spend time cleaning devices and reduces risk of the device harbouring bacteria that may be harmful to the user.
Enterprise Ireland has supported development of soloPEP by the team, which is made up of Prof Colum Dunne, Prof Leonard O’Sullivan, Dr Barry Linnane, Prof Deirdre McGrath and Kevin O’Sullivan.
