AerNos Announces Wearable Air Pollution Monitor at CES 2018Game changing AerBand wearable developed for research partners to transform air pollution health studies with 24/7 personal air monitoring targeting harmful pollutants.
CES 2018 - LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (January 9, 2018) - In a press conference at CES 2018, AerNos, an innovator in nano gas sensors, unveiled a game-changing wearable device for air pollution detection and research. Called AerBandTM Research, the wearable or clip-able device will revolutionize how scientific studies track and study human exposure to harmful air pollutants. AerBand Research will be shipping to customers in the first half of 2018 and available to consumers in 2019.
By monitoring the personal surrounding air of research participants 24/7, AerBand will be a powerful new tool for dramatically expanding scientists’ understanding of the effects of air pollution on human health and for reducing exposure and improving health.
“AerBand Research is a breakthrough that will lead to better answers to the most urgent questions I’m hearing from parents everyday – what pollutants are we exposed too, what matters and how do we avoid them,” said Christopher Gavigan, Honest Company Co-Founder and AerNos Advisor. “Air pollution monitoring today does not tell me what I’m breathing right here, right now. It significantly limits health research and our ability to take action. AerBand is about to change that.”
AerBand Research is designed to be worn or attached via clip for always-on air pollution monitoring. AerNos’ nano gas sensor technology enables simultaneous detection of multiple indoor and outdoor airborne toxins to ppb levels. AerBand pairs with an end user App for tracking real-time pollution levels, historical information and for accessing recommended actions. Organizations access data via the AerBand Data Cloud API – including detailed air pollution readings, geolocation and usage information.
“With the introduction of AerBand, our vision to introduce a wearable product that can significantly change health and wellness in such a profound way is taking shape,” said Sundip R. Doshi, Founder and CEO of AerNos. “We are excited to utilize AerCNT, our breakthrough in nanotechnology to bring gas sensing applications to the market.”
Air pollution is a significant contributor to illness, disease and death around the world, with health effects that include birth defects, asthma and other lung diseases, heart disease, cancer, ADHD and other diseases. The Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health recently reported that pollution is the largest cause of premature death, 16% of all premature deaths worldwide, and air pollution is the biggest contributor.
As a part of its vision of a trillion nano gas sensor network, in addition to announcing AerBand Research, AerNos announced IoT products for integration into Smart City and Smart Home products.
