The technology uses sensors can make extensive lung function readings by detecting sound from the organs and providing diagnosis and advice, LetsGoDigital reports.

The Korean manufacturing giant have respiratory diseases can be diagnosed as well as the frequency and strength of breath can be measured. 

A number of different diagnoses can be made including pneumonia and bronchitis, but also chronic lung diseases such as asthma and COPD are recognised

According to a patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organisation, the technology takes your health history into account along with your Body Mass Index.

To get the correct diagnosis, the user’s age, gender, weight and height are taken into account along with their medical history.  

The sensors connect to the smartphone, so the user can read the diagnosis, like ‘pneumonia symptoms’ or ‘respiratory infection’ on the screen.
