The Challenge – Innovative technologies for indicating consumer health
The search focused on innovative technologies that could be used in consumer products to provide health guidance, for example providing consumers with ways of detecting early signs of tooth decay or gum health while using oral hygiene products. Suitable technologies would not need to fully diagnose serious conditions but instead provide consumers with a way of better detecting early signs or warning them where they may be at increased risk.
