Clinical trials and research

What can SunSense provide for your clinical trial and research project?

By providing an accurate, real-time measure of sun exposure, SunSense UV Sensors allow researchers to accurately track and measure the effects of sun exposure on participants.

What are SunSense UV Sensors?
SunSense UV Sensors are wearable devices that measure ultraviolet radiation exposure levels. They are non-invasive, accurate, and easy to use. This sensor is compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, allowing the user to view real-time UV levels and receive notifications when UV levels exceed certain thresholds. SunSense UV Sensors are also user-friendly, allowing the wearer to pair their tracker with a smartphone app to view data, set alarms, and track daily UV exposure.

How do SunSense UV Sensors benefit clinical trials?
SunSense UV Sensors can lead to an increase in participation in clinical trials by allowing researchers to accurately measure sun exposure and provide participants with important information about their health. They also enable researchers to more effectively measure the effects of sun exposure on participants’ health, and other observations in relation to UV exposure that could provide more data points.

What data do SunSense UV Sensors provide?
We offer a number of data points, for example related to UV exposure, accumulated dose, time, and position. 

Our technology platform is highly customizable and data tracking and output can be tailored to meet specific study protocol requirements. This also includes which data should be presented to the participants or not.

We also have an RGB option available for tracking of visible light exposure, UVA/UVB separation, and higher accuracy UV measurements.

What are the advantages of using SunSense UV Sensors?
SunSense UV Sensors provide accurate, real-time data that can be used to track participant sun exposure. As such, they have the potential to positively impact a variety of settings and populations.

The use of SunSense UV Sensors will allow researchers to gain valuable insight into the effects of sun exposure on various conditions and diseases, leading to better treatments and outcomes for those involved in the clinical trials.
