Smart Nicotine Replacement Therapy
Nicotine replacement therapy should be accessible. The definition of accessible is different to individual use cases, but for busy people, a visit to the doctors is a lot more time consuming than placing an order on Amazon. The QuitStik brings the convenience of the internet to smoking cessation by offering access to adaptable Nicotine Replacement Therapy in conjunction with behaviour change facilitating software. QuitStik is smart Nicotine Replacement Therapy. Using a quantified e-cigarette, QuitStik learns the extent of the user's addiction. It guides the user through a nicotine detox, by calculating daily usage targets which are communicated to the user by a vibrating motor in the body of the e-cigarette. Unlike regular N.R.T. products, QuitStik actively modifies the detox plan based on the users smoking habits. E-cigarettes provide an experience similar to smoking tobacco, which means the QuitStik can fit into a smoker's lifestyle with minimal disturbance.
