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 work accurately in the sun, under clouds, and in the shade.
Developed by PhDs and funded by the National Cancer Institute, the Shade UV sensor provides accurate results 10x more often than many other sensors. Our research is published, peer-reviewed, and scientific.
UV sensitivity varies widely between individuals. Our app starts by introducing you to generally accepted UV limits based on skin type. You can also choose a setting suggested by a trusted advisor or your physician.
As you use our wearable UV sensor, you can fine-tune the daily limit directly in the app, to a level that works just for you. The app will notify you in five steps as you approach your limit. With these warnings, you will always be 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.

In addition to making raw UV exposure data available to researchers, we offer an observational app on both iOS and Android unobtrusively collects behavioral UV data without showing it to your study subjects. This app has been used to monitor the effectiveness of behavioral interventions and to collect data on user behavior without relying on recall and memory.
There is a nominal fee for study setup and data access as well as an academic discount.
