Too much UV exposure leads to serious consequences, such as skin cancer or immune reactions. Measuring accurately your sun exposure may help you stay ahead.
To be useful, wearable UV sensors must mimick the skin's sensitivity to sunlight.
Developed by PhDs and funded by the National Cancer Institute, the Shade UV sensor is proven to be 10x more accurate than other sensors at mimicking the skin sensitivity to UV. We published our research in a scientific peer-reviewed journal.
UV sensitivity is unique to everyone. Our app starts by introducing you to known limits of UV exposure. As you use the sensor, you can fine-tune a daily limit of UV exposure that works just for you.
The app sends pushes notifications every 20% of this limit so that you are always one step ahead.
Our sensors have been used at Northwestern Medical School, Weill-Cornell Medicine, Hopital Europeen, among others. Using Shade UV sensors, Dr. Stump et al. validated a new metric to measure "unprotected" time in sunlight.
Please reach out to us at email@example.com. We offer an app on both iOS and Android where the UV data is not shown to patients, enabling you to measure their UV behavior without biasing them.
There is a study fee ($1,000 per study) and a monthly fee ($500 per month) to access every sensor's data in real-time. We offer a 20% discount to academic researchers.
