Comfable Launches its AI-Powered Wearable Sun Tracker, QSun
The QSun Wearable Sun Tracker has launched on IndieGoGo to helps users find a healthy balance between natural vitamin D production and sun protection.
TORONTO, ON — (March 8, 2018) – Just over a year after their first successful Kickstarter campaign, Comfable has just introduced its new and improved sun safety wearable. The QSun wearable is a small device with a sleek design that users can easily attach to their clothes or accessories.
The QSun device tracks sun exposure and the companion app uses AI technology to give personalized sun safety recommendations based on the user’s skin type. It warns users when they are about to get a sunburn so they can apply sunscreen or seek shade. It also tracks vitamin D intake based on sun exposure, dietary and supplemental sources to avoid vitamin D deficiency. The app is already helping thousands of people worldwide make better decisions about their sun exposure.
1 in 5 Americans and 1 in 7 Canadians develop skin cancer, mostly due to overexposure to the sun. Sun exposure is also responsible for 90% of preventable skin aging, including the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. On the other hand, 75% of Americans are vitamin D deficient. The vitamin is an essential nutrient for our bones and muscles, sun exposure being a major source of production. QSun is designed to address these worldwide problems.
“As a postdoctoral researcher focussing on urban climate, I was struck by the dangerous effect that UV rays have on the human body,” said Dr. Neda Ghazi, founder of Comfable Inc., makers of QSun. “We gained huge traction after launching the first generation of QSun. We then spent months collaborating with customers and professionals to redesign the QSun device and make it even better.”
