In 2012, 7 million people died as a result of air pollution exposure, making air quality the number 1 environmental health risk. Women and children are among the most vulnerable.
Aire is a wearable air quality monitor that provides actionable recommendations to protect the health of a pregnant woman and her unborn child.
The Aire device pairs with existing air purification systems and citywide air quality report to make it as easy as possible to breathe clean air.
The device measures air particulate matter (PM 2.5) and volatile organic compounds (VOC), both linked to poor health outcomes.
