Case Study
Airlens By Persapien

Project Overview

Air Pollution is the leading cause of health problems in today’s world. It causes respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological and birth disorders. Every year 8 million deaths are attributed to it. Everyone is vulnerable to air pollution. However, growing children are the worst sufferers of its effects. Airlens, brought to the public by Persapien, is an integrated solution that helps prevent users from inhaling toxic air.

PersSapien wanted to provide vital data about air quality in line with the International Standards of AQI (Air Quality Index), related to a user’s location. This would help users in making real time decision about when to wear the Airlens device and help prevent themselves and their loved ones from bad air and pollution around them. The company started with the New Delhi NCR region and wanted to help address the problem of pollution in Delhi. They were looking for the best Mobile App developer in India and got referred to Mindrops by a client who suggested us to them.

Persapien approached Mindrops to build a self-manageable, scalable, gamified native iOS and Android Mobile App that would better inform Airlens users about the AQI status in their surroundings in real time. They also required a web platform to educate users as well as to make Airlens refills available to their users in a seamless and an efficient way.
