What's the inspiration behind Awair?

When Ronald Ro had his first child, he, like many other parents, found out that his baby was suffering from eczema. After many frustrating months of research and trying a seemingly endless number of strategies, he realized that his baby girl’s suffering was closely linked to the quality of the air around her. What he also realized was that there weren’t any products available that could help him understand what was in her air and how he could make her more comfortable. Using his engineering background Ron decided to build a device that could track chemicals and toxins in the air. He connected with his close friend Kevin Cho and they built the first Awair… for his daughter.
