In the spirit of the recent COPD Crowdshaped event, I have a somewhat unusual question.
Tonight in my COPD group, we were discussing ways to beat the heat (inspired by the Foundation's Facebook post today). One member talked about being sure to start and pre-cool her car before going out (as well as pre-heating it in the winter). She uses a remote car starter so her exposure to temperature and humidity extremes is minimized. This was kind of a too-obvious-to-see revelation for me, and it got me to thinking about unconventional ways to use current technology, and possibly even unconventional partnerships/initiatives in the future (like teaming with GM to offer OnStar discounts to people with documented COPD).
What other existing/commonplace technologies can we possibly "repurpose" to help out in the COPD world?
