What is Sparo?

Sparo Labs developed Wing, a smartphone-connected, pocket-size device that uses innovative technology to accurately measure lung function. Their product empowers patients to better understand, track, and proactively manage their asthma so they can discover what most of us take for granted – a simple breath.

Sparo Labs was acquired by Wellinks in 2022.
