Immutouch is a smartband that vibrates every time you touch your face, keeping you safe today and building clean habits for tomorrow.
Common pathogens like flu, coronavirus, and the common cold enter your system through the porous mucous membranes in your mouth, nose, and eyes. Unless you just washed your hands, it’s possible you risk infection any time you touch your face.
"Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick."
"Don’t touch your face. It only takes a few virus particles to infiltrate your mucous membranes and make you sick. What are mucous membranes? The soft, moist, folds of your eyes (don’t rub your eyes!), nose (don’t pick your nose!) and mouth (don’t bite your nails/pick your teeth/lick your fingers!)."
“The C.D.C. and W.H.O. still say something like ‘avoid' touching your eyes, nose and mouth,” said Dr. William P. Sawyer, a family physician in Sharonville, Ohio, and creator of HenrytheHand.com, which promotes hand and face hygiene. “The advice should be ‘absolutely do not touch them!’ If you never touch your facial mucous membranes, you’re less likely to be sick again from any viral respiratory infection.”
"Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. Viruses that cause colds can enter your body this way and make you sick"
A gravimeter in the Immutouch band uses a personalizable algorithm to track hand position and alert you instantly to any hazardous gestures. Over time, you’ll build up routines that keep you and the people around you healthy.
On average, people touch their face 23 times per hour. Everytime you touch your face, Immutouch vibrates, making you aware of an otherwise unconscious behaviour. By making you aware of each occurence, you’ll stop the habit of passively touching your face.
Each Immutouch band can be calibrated for your own movements and desired sensitivity. A phone can be paired with up to two bands for setup, but bands continue to function phone-free without a Bluetooth connection. The phone also records each touch so you can track your progress over time.
