Innovation Challenge: Skin Prediction


When living with a chronic skin condition such as psoriasis, people often face the issue of not being able to predict the next flare-up. When will it happen? Where on the body will it occur? How bad will it be? We know that certain factors may trigger outbreaks such as stress, seasonality, certain foods, alcohol and hormonal changes. Nevertheless, psoriasis sufferers still have a hard time predicting the next flare-up, not being able to respond to it before it’s too late. Constantly living with this uncertainty and unpredictability can be frustrating as people feel less in charge of their lives.



We are looking for a solution that will enable people to predict when the next skin flare-up will occur. Such a solution may also tell where the flare-up will occur on the body, however, this is not a requirement.

Note that this challenge is not solely an idea challenge. Participants must eventually submit a proposed solution consisting of software, hardware or other forms of technology.
