Short description
Smoking is a major risk factor and an increasing number of smokers are seeking medical assistance to quit their habit. In this context, there is a need to develop applications that help and manage large smoking cessation programs efficiently and economically. With this objective in mind, the “Systems Biology and Statistical Methods for Research” group has developed this efficient and free application, T-Control, which makes it easier for doctors to manage, assist and monitor people who want to quit smoking. T-Control has proven to be stable and high performing, and can be used regardless of age and gender, thus having great potential in today’s market. Finally, its wide implementation could reduce costs for the public health system, thus increasing the value of the application. TRL: TRL 6 Protection: No protection Objective: Search for funding, sale of the app, business collaboration to bring the app to the market.
