One way to avoid skin cancer is to monitor the amount of sunscreen one applies. But it is often not so easy to remember to keep reapplying throughout the day. Now however, thanks to a new special bracelet invention made by two teenagers, this is no longer a problem. 17-year old Danielle Watt and Sarah Mount have created a bracelet with a sensor which changes color when one needs to apply additional sunscreen. The girls were inspired to create this, since they both know people with skin cancer. It is thus now their hope that the bracelet will prevent others from going through the same ordeal.
The Exposure Band has a UV monitoring face that, because of UV reactive materials, changes from white to bright yellow to alert the user when additional sunscreen need be applied. Made from soft plastic with a resin face, it comes in seven colors and is suitable for both children and adults.
