Hava Health

Hava Health is a healthcare startup tackling nicotine dependence amongst the younger generation in the U.S. due to the spread of electric cigarettes. The electric cigarette in the U.S. is different from Japanese ones because U.S. ones can be controlled to absorb liquid nicotine. Hava’s nicotine addiction treatment device uses the same mechanism as the electric cigarettes to control the nicotine dosage vis a smartphone app so that users can gradually reduce it. Hale Therapeutics plans to get medical device approval in the U.K. (MHRA) and USA (FDA)
