“There is an epidemic of allergic disease in Europe and elsewhere in the world.”

Peter Burney, Vice President of research at the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network (GALEN)


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

  • Target Group:

  • 20% of the world population suffers from allergic diseases

  • Asthma is caused by allergies in 50% of adults and at least 80% of affected children.

  • 150 million people worldwide suffer from asthma

  • 1 out of 3 European citizens suffer from some allergy related condition


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

  • Non intrusive, transparent system, easy to use and understand.

  • Allergens move constantly because of wind currents.

  • People have different sensitivities to the various allergens.

  • There are people with allergies in food and medicine.

Design Considerations


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

  • Measures the concentration of allergens in the air.

  • Interprets the measurements according to the user’s sensitivity.

  • Computes the risk factor for an allergic reaction.

  • Warns the user of rising risk to his health.

  • Offers assistance to people with allergies in food or medicine.

Pocket and Desktop PC Application


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

Pocket PC add-on

Custom made device used to acquire andtransmit the essential data for allergen identification and concentration measurement

Measurements are performed by an electronic-nose sensor

The resulting signals are digitized, filtered andamplified by an ADuC834 microprocessor

Data are sent to the AllergyON! Pocket PC application via RS232 interface.

Pocket PC Application

Main control unit, processing and recognition module, user interface

  • Performs :

  • Signal Processing

  • Allergen identification and concentration measurement

  • Risk assessment

Graphical representation of measurement data through maps and graphs

Use of Web Services to obtain weather and pollen forecast data, food ingredient, restaurant menus and drug substances information


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

Pattern Recognition algorithm

  • Signal filtering

  • Data normalization

  • Change in electrical resistance, sensor by sensor

  • The vector of values represents the allergen’s fingerprint

  • Pattern recognition algorithms

  • Allergen Classification and concentration estimation

System Demonstration


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

Why is the system innovative?

  • The only mobile system that combines airborne-allergens and allergies in food and medicine

  • Personalized, real time risk assessment (in contrast with generic, once-a-day pollen count information)

  • The only application of e-nose sensors on allergen detection


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

Why is the system effective?

  • Easy-to-use

  • Not a source of annoyance

  • On-the-spot advice

  • Compact-size, low-weight sensor module


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

Why is the system effective? (larger scale effects)

  • Enhances social life of allergic people

  • By preventing allergic seizures:

    • Minimal hospitalization

    • Reduced medication

    • Substantial savings in health resources

      • 16.7 million office visits to health care providers in the USA

      • 11.3 billion $ annual cost for asthma treatment in the USA


Team members marios mitrosilis emanouil papastergis argyrios tzakas alexia tzalavra

How does the system adapt to the user?

  • Risk assessment according to user’s sensitivities

  • Food and drug advice according to the user’s allergen specifications

  • The system is aware of the user’s location and provides location specific information
