Bringing Allergen Detection to Wearables
Between 10 to 30% of the world’s population suffers from allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and up to 8% of the population has a food allergy. These allergies cannot be cured, and an increasing percentage of the global population is affected. While epinephrine injections can lessen the effects of a severe allergic reaction, sufferers still have to be very vigilant. Increasingly, there is a focus on the potential for wearables to help allergy sufferers better understand and manage their condition, and a range of companies are looking to bring devices to the market.
