Shade has developed the first wearable technology to measure accurately solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Shade connects to the smartphone via Bluetooth, enabling lupus patients to discover and manage their personal tolerance to UV exposure directly on their smartphones. Lupus is a severe disease for which UV exposure has an immediate, debilitating, and life-threatening impact. Shade has gained significant traction in the lupus community with endorsement by key opinion leaders and influencers.
The Shade team is comprised of scientists and engineers with a deep expertise in semiconductors, artificial intelligence, manufacturing, and epidemiology, and is backed by a strong medical advisory board.
