UV Wristband Helps Prevent Sunbathers From Burning
“A Swedish company called Intellego Technologies is set to commercialize a special wristband, much like the kind wrapped around your wrist at concerts and music festivals, that can alert its wearer when it’s time to get out of the sun so as to avoid burning or potentially carcinogenic sun damage.”
The disposable wristband that can tell you when to get out of the sun
“The technology will be commercialised by Swedish-based company Intellego Technologies, established by Swedish entrepreneur Claes Lindahl.”
Can a £1 wristband tell when you've had enough sun?
"All hail Smartsun, then – a clever device in a discreet wristband that measures the amount of UV radiation you've been exposed to and changes colour accordingly."
A Wristband that Tells You When to Get Out of the Sun
“The new device lets people know when they’re nearing their limit of ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposure by changing color from yellow to pink as the risk of overexposure increases. They’re cheap (potentially just 15 cents per bracelet), easy to wear and can be thrown out at the end of the day.”
The Safest Way to Tan
“Everyone knows that too much time in the sun can expose you to excessive ultraviolet radiation, which can lead to premature skin aging and, worse, melanoma and other skin cancers. But that’s not going to stop people from cooking themselves in search of the perfect tan. The problem has become an epidemic: more than 3.5 million skin cancers in over 2 million people diagnosed annually in the U.S.”
The Green Edit: the Smartsun wristband
As easy as it sounds, it's the reapplying bit that we tend to forget while we're enjoying ourselves in the sun - and it's going without another timely dose of our sun protection cream that so often causes us to burn. But now the guesswork and self-reminders have been taken out of sun filter application by a cleverly designed wristband created by Smartsun.
