NELA Today*: The Answer to Chronic Cough

One in ten people worldwide experiences chronic cough, but for about 40 percent of them, the cause remains unknown. Typically, the only information available for a more detailed diagnosis comes from patients' personal accounts of their coughing. That’s where our innovative solution, NELA, steps in. NELA can objectively track coughs and store all the relevant data, providing a more accurate picture for diagnosis.
