Company details

HabitAware makes an awareness bracelet to prevent face touching. Its Keen bracelet uses machine learning to recognize hand gestures in real time. This product was developed to treat Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRB), has won multiple awards including TIME Magazine Best Innovation in 2018, and already sold thousands of units. HabitAware has seen a spike of usage as frontline healthcare workers and the general public are now using the Keen bracelet to stop face-touching behaviors and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
