Breakthrough UV protection technology

Trig is pleased to announce that our client Sunscreenr has forged a new path in breakthrough UV protection technology. ZEISS Vision and Sunscreener partnered to develop a new system to analyze glasses for their level of ultraviolet light protection. ZEISS is known for their UV400 standard which goes above the lower industry standard of UV380, thus shielding wearers’ eyes from even more of the most harmful light rays.

With the C-UV400 tablet, professionals in the medical industry along with eyewear specialists can show their clients exactly how defended their eyes will be in any set of glasses. Sunscreenr previously made waves with a UV detection camera displays sunscreen coverage on skin. This technological foundation has been built upon to create the indoor detection technology that is now at work in the C-UV400. The 8” tablet is easy to transport and features intuitive operation making it fun and informative for clients and technicians alike.

Lead designer Patrick Murphy of Trig had the following to say:

"The technology the Sunscreenr team has engineered is incredible, and has profound implications for health on many fronts - this latest partnership with ZEISS is proof of that. When we started working with Sunscreenr, we were designing a handheld device that helps apply sunscreen by showing the user missed application spots. Fast forward to the past few months, and we're integrating the same tech into a powerful point-of-sale tool that will help customers directly understand the light-filtering benefits of ZEISS lenses. I don't think we've seen the limits of Sunscreenr's technology. I'm excited to see where it goes next."
