Inside the box of the Sportshaler is an adaptor designed specifically for use with a spacer, along with directions on how to use the optional spacer adaptor.
Sports-haler - asthma relief within reach
The Sports-haler is a next generation, reusable device for the safe storage, transport and delivery of asthma reliever medication from pressurised metered dose inhalers (pMDI's) and will take a standard, traditional shape and size Ventolin canister. It has been developed for anyone with asthma, but especially for active people with asthma. The design of the Sports-haler enables medication to be carried with safety - and style!
Sports-haler with accessory pack
The Sports-haler can be purchased individually or with a hard cover clip-on holder, enabling you to wear it during any activity or sport. When you don't have a pocket to put your inhaler in and require quick access to your inhaler, the Sports-haler with holder is the perfect, safe solution.
The Sports-haler features a retractable mouthpiece for the safe and hygienic delivery of asthma medication, providing the same metered dose in the usual way. Its retractable twist action mouthpiece and sealed body help prevent dirt and moisture entering the reusable device.
The Sports-haler's weatherproof, hygienic and compact design is perfect for slipping into a pocket while out and about - at work, at the gym, or facing the elements during outdoor pursuits, enabling people with asthma to participate in their sport or activity of choice with confidence, knowing their medication is protected and is easily and quickly accessible.

How the Sports-haler works:
A medication canister is simply inserted into the body of the Sports-haler (in the same way you would a traditional asthma inhaler). The Sports-haler body is then sealed with a flexible end cap. When needed, the mouthpiece cover is opened by twisting it, allowing the mouthpiece to extend out. The Sports-haler is then used in the traditional way by pressing the end cap to release a metered dose. After use the mouthpiece is retracted with a twist action, forming a protective seal.
About Sports-haler with Holder:
The Sports-haler with holder comprises one Sports-haler and a strong, robust belt clip that can be threaded onto a belt or armband and clipped over clothing. The holder provides additional protection against the external environment and encloses the Sports-haler with a secure snap lock cover that comes in 3 colours, one of which is colour-coded to the Sports-haler.
Sports-haler - proudly supporting Asthma Foundations, Australia.
The Sports-haler has been realised thanks in part to support from Queensland Government Smart State initiatives and an Innovation Start-up Scheme for future medical device development and has since been successfully received by customers in Australia.
"As a parent with two children who have life threatening asthma I thoroughly recommend the Sportshaler. No more lost mouthpiece covers, the mouthpiece twists out and then retracts. It’s perfectly sealable and hygienic, keeping out the dust and dirt. The kids love the fact it doesn’t look like an asthma puffer, they especially love the trendy colours. Each child has their own colour, it’s a safe and easy way to ensure their medication doesn’t get mixed up. No more lost puffers falling out of pockets and getting lost in backpacks. The kids are able to safely hang the Sports Haler around their necks and off they go. In an emergency knowing that their asthma medication is on them gives me piece of mind, especially when they are out and about." Brianne (Rochdale, QLD)
