Palm Iontophoresis Device
Palmar hyperhidrosis is a dermatological condition characterised by chronic excessive sweating from the hands. A dermatological skin condition that affects 1% of the global population, equating to approximately 70 million people worldwide. It remains largely unheard-of, a profoundly stigmatising that diagnosis has effects on an individual's physical tactile capacity, psychological well-being and overall quality of life. The 'Palm' iontophoresis device allows patients to control their palmar perspiration through iontophoretic therapy, a process of passing a minor electrical current through the hand to block overactive sweat glands. 'Palm' harnesses the use of galvanic skin responses to measure sweat levels throughout their iontophoretic journey. This provides an insight into the emotionally driven sweat triggers that gives patients an opportunity for methodical perspiration intervention. The 'Palm' device ultimately aims to empower patients to recapture control of their stigmatising condition, eroding physical and mental barriers by introducing a positive lifestyle through body appreciation.
