Abstract:
    To achieve something through efficient and friendly way. SkinDAD will help patients suffering from various skin disorders get rid of painful and lengthy biopsy report system.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Every year around 2-4 million cases of skin cancer are seen, also around 500 million people are infected with dengue. Most of the times these cases are left unattended and neglected confused with some common body rash or mole until they have reached critical stage. We aim to change that.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Each year 50 million cases of various skin disorders occur globally of which 4 million cases are of Skin cancer, the most fatal of them all. SkinDAD will be able to help save millions of lives by attending to disease at the right time so that no cases arise because of negligence.
How will the solution works
    SkinDAD is a portable, noninvasive device that detects various skin diseases using Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS). NIRs uses the method of transmitting near infrared light of wavelengths between 780-1600nm and detecting the reflected spectra using a Photodiode. The absorption and scattering of NIR light is due to molecular overtone and combination vibration, which allows us to determine characteristic molecular changes in the composition and structure of biological tissues such as skin.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The market size is vast but sticky to invasive, conventional method. SkinDAD is the only product in the market that targets the problem so there is no competition. Other methods Include Skin biopsy or Skin impedance but they are extremely costly and lengthy processes.
