Tariq's story

Our first app, Rafi-Tone is aimed at improving the experience of delivering inhaler medication to young children and was conceived as a result of our founder Tariq Aslam’s struggles with delivering inhaler medication to his young son. Find out more about Rafi-Tone and how you can get it here.

“When my son Rafi was young he suffered a lot from wheezing that needed intensive treatment which caused a lot of distress. I desperately pulled together all the research knowledge I had in analysis of sound, game theory and programming to try and make something that would make it easier for him. Eventually Rafi-Tone was born. It had an immediate impact on Rafi when we first used it late one night. Instead of crying through his inhaler treatment, he took it quietly and calmly, saying:

“That was great Dad, can we do it again tomorrow?”

It is immensely rewarding to know that through Clin-e-cal, this technology is making a difference for other inhaler users too.”
