SpiroTech

SpiroTech was founded by Dr. James Bradford, a former NASA materials research and Georgia Tech physics professor.  Dr. Bradford oversaw the first medical database application in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s at Emory Clinic.  The first SpiroTech spirometer design was a result of a research project on pulmonary disease from cotton fiber manufacturing.
