Carrot Lands FDA Approval for Smoking Cessation Mobile Device
California-based digital health company Carrot won 510(k) clearance for the first over-the-counter carbon monoxide breath sensor for use in smoking cessation programs.
The Carbon Monoxide Breath Sensor System’ mobile breath sensor can be paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth to measure carbon monoxide in exhaled breath. It shows users in real-time how their cigarette smoking behavior is impacting their carbon monoxide levels to help them quit smoking.
The company also launched its own smoking cessation program in a smartphone medical application called Pivot.
