SunD: Innovative app for children's vitamin D


About creating SunD App

Being careful parents we usually face the problem of determining the accurate quantity of the vitamins necessary for children`s healthy growth. One of the most important problems is to ensure the optimal daily value of sun-generated vitamin D. There are a huge number of sources and scientific researches for sun-generated vitamin D, but there is no a simple and easy tool to use. We had a task to create an innovative tool for parents through mobile application for easily solving the problem of the sun-generated vitamin D exact Daily Value for children.

At this moment "SunD" is the first innovative App in the world which scans solar UV index by mobile device camera and allows parents to manage their children`s vitamin D Daily Value receiving from the sun.

The "SunD" App is very easy and comfortable for parents, without using any additional accessories such as UV index meters or other special gadgets.

For measuring the sun UV intensity by a mobile device we use only the mobile device camera which optics are cutting the needed wavelength of UV to be measured. The task was successfully completed by a scientific approach: used Earth off-line clear sky UV index database (Data courtesy of the O3M SAF project of the EUMETSAT; source: O3M SAF for Atmospheric Composition and UV Radiation and mobile device shooting sun picture by analyzing it through Probability Density Distribution and Interpolation principle algorithm. The received results are compared with laboratory values, which accuracy class is higher than the results of existing scientific articles related with UVI optimal doses. At the same time, our team of scientists is going to publish a scientific article related to the solved task in the “World of Science” magazine of National Academy of Sciences of RA. Vitamin D Daily Value calculations are mainly based on the scientific researches of UV Radiation.
