Raisonance has also developed a suite of wellness products. The MyAdvocate product line is focused on supporting people with chronic respiratory conditions like COPD, COVID-19, and smoking cessation. The FCV Sentinel solution helps users monitor their overall respiratory wellness and get an early warning and an impact score if they have been exposed to pathogens, environmental impacts like wildfire smoke, or chemical agents.
