Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PLEASANT GROVE, Utah - Dec 21, 2018 - Red Pepper Software develops tech solutions to real-world problems. So, when an opportunity presented itself to tackle something that has vexed humanity for millennia, they jumped at the chance. In the fall of 2017, Red Pepper Software met with Larada Sciences and learned about their crusade against a persistent pain in the scalp for people everywhere – head lice. Larada Sciences has developed revolutionary technology, the AirAllé device, that eliminates lice using dehydration. Red Pepper Software has augmented the device with key features to improve the experience for patients and treatment providers. With this tech partnership in hand, Larada Sciences is uniquely equipped to continue offering this game-changing treatment to an age-old problem.
Geneticists estimate that lice pre-date homo sapiens by 1.68 million years, and the earliest known case of head lice was on a 10,000-year-old body discovered in Brazil. This ancient annoyance continues to bother humanity today – there are between 6-12 million cases of lice a year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One reason for their endurance is that lice are extremely adaptive. Research shows lice are developing a resistance to topical pesticide-based treatments. Cases of this strain of genetically tenacious ‘super lice’ are popping up all over the United States and could be crawling into a school district or workplace near you!
To save us from this scourge, Larada Sciences developed the AirAllé device. This device uses a specialized combination of temperature, airflow, time, and technique to eliminate head lice and 99.2% of lice eggs in one treatment. It is a safer and more effective alternative to the harsh chemicals and untested herbal remedies that many turn to today. Larada Sciences now powers this technology with a custom software interface developed by Red Pepper Software which carefully regulates the treatment to maximize both treatment efficacy and patient safety. Red Pepper Software also built features that provide operators with data analytics and control over the devices. This unique hardware coupled with Red Pepper’s innovative software enables Larada Sciences to offer commercial and in-home applications to eradicate lice once and for all.
Larada Sciences presented us with a really unique opportunity to fulfill our company mission to ‘Build What Matters.’ We love working with the Larada team on an awesome product that helps solve a problem affecting so many people, and we’re excited to continue providing support in custom software and app development to them in the future.
