The World’s First Smart Allergy and
Asthma Air Quality Alert System.
For Immediate Release
January 11, 2016
Burlingame, Ca. – January 11, 2016. AlerSense, Incorporated has created the world’s first smart airborne allergy and asthma early warning system alerting consumers as particles and toxins build. AlerSense™ is an in-home unit when, combined with the mobile app, delivers accurate environmental readings, giving asthma and allergy sufferers precious time to remove themselves from, or alter the environment. AlerSense™ delivers precise in-home measurements of airborne contamination and toxins such as pollen, mold, dust, dust mite waste, VOC’s and animal dander helping consumers monitor the levels of airborne contamination in the environment that are unhealthy for allergy and asthma sufferers. AlerSense™ also tracks humidity and temperature thus creating a holistic air quality assessment.
AlerSense™ was founded by a team of passionate people who were determined to change the way we look allergies and asthma caused by airborne contaminants. “For the longest time we have accepted the fact that allergies and asthma attacks ‘just happen’. We wanted to work on a project that would help people throughout the world understand when contaminants are building in the home so that they can make the appropriate adjustments”, said Skip Sanzeri founder and CEO of AlerSense. “We’ve combined some of the world’s most advanced sensors, with a smart mobile app and extensive software algorithms that will allow users to record allergy and asthma symptoms at the time when they first noticed the symptoms. Our goal is to give consumers enough time to leave or change the environment. And the system gets smarter as it learns each family member’s sensitivities based on user input. Airborne contaminants are usually invisible to the naked eye and therefore attack unannounced. Well, we’re here to make the announcement.”
AlerSense™ units will be available in the spring of 2016. Interested customers may preorder AlerSense™ via the AlerSense™ website at www.AlerSense.com.
The global allergy diagnostic and treatment market is projected to increase to nearly $35.3 billion by 2015 from $31.5 billion in 2014. This market is expected to reach $46.8 billion by 2020, corresponding to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8% during 2015 to 2020 period according to BCC Research.
According to the U. S. Center for Disease Control (CDC), it is estimated that 1 in 12 Americans has asthma. Additionally the CDC estimates that 17.6 million Americans were diagnosed with hay fever in the past 12 months.
AlerSense™ works by detecting contamination concentrations at precise intervals and monitoring their dynamics. AlerSense™ is based on advanced contamination sensing technologies and advanced signal processing electronics, and utilizes a proprietary cloud-based platform, interfacing with connected-sensors. This combination of best in class sensor technology with our advanced algorithms and analytics capability delivers a powerful consumer airborne contamination detection system.
AlerSense™ integrates with the AlerSense™ app on both iPhone and android. Users are able to input personalized feelings and behaviors which are then correlated to the precise conditions at that time, in the environment. Since each user is different, and responds differently to environmental conditions, the AlerSense™ system is smart and begins to learn what triggers cause physical issues as the environment changes.
AlerSense™ stands for ‘Aler’ (Alert, Allergy), and ‘Sense’ (detect and report). AlerSense™ is committed to providing high quality consumer airborne contminant sensing solutions. Our team is dedicated to helping allergy and asthma sufferers. We do this with our advanced AlerSense™ unit, associated mobile app and algorithms, all of which give consumers time to adjust via an early warning system. Based in Silicon Valley and Dublin, Ireland, AlerSense™ will help change the world by alerting consumers of conditions which could cause allergy and asthma attacks.
