Meyko was born out of the meeting of minds between Sandrine Bender and Alizée Gottardo during a training program on the Internet of Things, aimed at making engineers and designers collaborate. The enthusiasm that grew throughout the project coupled with the conviction of the development potential, inspired them to launch an entrepreneurial adventure.

Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children. This respiratory disease now aects 1 in 10 children around the world! This illness is accountable for 250,000 annual deaths worldwide and is the third leading cause of hospitalization among children in the US.

Asthma treatment is characterized by a daily controller medication and an emergency treatment (quick relief medicine like Ventolin). Long-term controller treatments help stabilize the disease and are the basis for an improved daily health condition for asthmatic children!
