High-tech solution for smell health and care
Temporary or permanent loss of the sense of smell can take a serious toll on a person’s health and even cause mental health disorders. In fact, early olfactory dysfunction is a biomarker for detecting diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. The negative effects of smell dysfunctions have also been experienced by a larger global population due to the impact of COVID-19. In this context, the ERC-funded SmellHealth project will design new digital smell healthcare applications for smell training for a highly accurate, efficient, adaptive and affordable smell delivery technology. It will enable the collection of reliable data, the creation of digital data sets based on smell performance, and extend the benefits of personalised electronic healthcare records for monitoring, diagnosis and prevention.
