Doze is an IoT enabled platform for personalized scent diffusion and on-skin drug delivery. Leveraging a hydrogel technology, the Doze system is designed for the on-demand metered release of scent or liquid based on the users controls, physiological state or sleep stage.
The system consists of two interlocking parts: a stretchy on-skin patch or a fabric-based eye-mask with an embedded heating coil that is rechargeable and reusable, and a single-use thermally-activated hydrogel insert, which connects to the device and rests on the face or skin. Our design allows for the pairing of specific scent (i.e. fragrance or essential oils) and/or drug (i.e. face serum, moisturizers, or pain-relief gels) releasing hydrogels based on the needs or preferences of the user.
