HelioS Smart Ring is a wearable Ultra-violet (UV) radiation sensor. It tracks your exposure to sunlight, helps to prevent sunburn, and ensure appropriate Vitamin D levels. A smartphone app accompanied by the ring provides the user with a graphical user interface with several coaching experiences: vitamin D, sunlight, and daylight.
People spend most of their time inside and behind computers, tablets, and television screens. This indoor lifestyle causes all kinds of health problems, sleeping difficulties, and stress. HelioS' mission is to motivate the users to get enough vitamin D and daylight without getting a sunburn.
Vitamin D is obtained by exposure of your skin to the sun. The HelioS ring aims to motivate you to consume vitamin D from the sun without getting a sunburn. When the sun is shining, the app shows the UV index and sends you a notification. After that, you can select the type of your clothing, and begin synthesizing vitamin D. The app shows how many units of vitamin D you are retrieving from the sun. The HelioS app notifies you when the effect of the sun is reaching unhealthy levels.
The sunlight coach on the HelioS app provides you personal sun protection. You can adjust the app for your skin type to get accurate measurements and notifications. You can also set the app with the right clothing and sunscreen to see how these influence your actual sunlight and vitamin D consumption.
The daylight coach on Helios app prompts you to get the minimum amount of daylight every day. For every coach, there are notifications and statistics per day, week, month, and year.
