In the search of a wearable device capable of measuring blood alcohol levels in real time, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), part of the National Institute of Health, issued the Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge in March of 2015.
The goal of the challenge was to create a device that not only improved on existing technology by providing real-time BAC monitoring, but also came with an inconspicuous design that is appealing to the general public. The challenge stated that the device must be able to measure blood alcohol level, interpret and store the data, or transmit it to a smartphone or other device by wireless transmission.
“We are thrilled to win the Wearable Alcohol Biosensor Challenge. We’re excited to bring BACtrack Skyn to market to aid researchers and treatment providers in collecting more reliable data and ultimately, make advances in healthcare treatment.”
