Skinuvita - Skin therapy in your own four walls Jan Elsner, Dr. Jens Pelzetter, Janina Clasen, Maria Eugenia Lima de Araujo
For 30 years, phototherapy has been considered by dermatologists as the most tolerable and cost-effective treatment method for skin problems such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis or vitiligo. However, frequent sessions within a short period of time are required for successful treatment. Many people such as working people, single parents or people from rural areas often cannot manage this in terms of time. Skinuvita is a tele-medical software system that allows for supervised UV home therapy that meets these prescription requirements. With the help of a therapy manager for creating, monitoring and adjusting therapy plans, a therapy app for the patient:s and a Bluetooth control module with which the healthcare professional operates the therapy device, phototherapy can be carried out at home. In this way, Skinuvita helps patients achieve a better quality of life and self-determination.
