More than 25% of the world’s population is suffering from atopic dermatitis and recently the cases have been increasing. Atopic dermatitis is the most common type of eczema, a long-term skin disorder that causes severe itching, dry skin, scabs, and other ailments that affect lifestyle. The disease can appear at any age, but it is more common in children.
To help with this skin disorder, a Swiss startup called NALA sought to provide a solution to those who are suffering from chronic skin conditions. They developed an app that can provide you or your child with a real and fast solution for people with chronic skin conditions.
Co-founders and CTOs of NALA Jeremy Henrichs and Spencer Cabildo wanted to provide a tool that helps people with atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions to improve the health of their skin. The app combines technology and dermatological knowledge, avoiding numerous treatment trials when considering statistical data from other patients.
Towards better skin
The NALA app applies artificial intelligence based on Netflix’s line recommendations engine. The app utilizes the medical knowledge of digital health experts and specialists of skin diseases and coupling it with med tech. It also takes the experience of people who have suffered atopic dermatitis into account to assist with the recovery process of your skin.
The Nala app works with a holistic approach that goes beyond conventional treatments and performing integral visual monitoring of the constant progress of each case. The app offers a 360° report of the patient’s skin, offering 24-hour access to information which includes advice from experts and personal digital attention.
The app can provide effective therapy recommendations that are adjusted to each skin’s needs. The Nala app takes into account the disorder level of the most affected areas as well as the environmental, allergic, and nutritional factors that could impact the disease, among other data.
The patient has access to a step-by-step guide with the Nala app. It also provides therapy options and information to understand their condition. In the long run, it can benefit the patient’s skin and provide healthy options as soon as possible, helping them towards becoming more emotionally happy and confident with their skin.
It is estimated that more than 200 million people will be able to have better skincare with the help of the NALA app. If you’re someone who has a skin disorder and would like to have specialized skincare access, you may apply as a beta tester for the app.
