About Xhale


Xhale, Inc. is a medical technology company developing and commercializing patient-centric monitoring solutions for the healthcare industry. Xhale is focused on developing two broad technology platforms. Through its Xhale Smart, Inc. subsidiary, Xhale is developing a medication adherence monitoring technology – the SMART® Adherence System – designed to verify, monitor, report, and improve adherence to medication regimens in clinical trials.
