The first FDA-cleared carbon monoxide Breath Sensor

Like a scale for monitoring weight loss, Pivot’s Breath Sensor is a quit smoking tool, helping track carbon monoxide (CO) in the breath by providing visual indicators related to their overall cigarette smoke consumption.

Clinically-proven to increase motivation and reduce the number of cigarettes smoked per day, the Breath Sensor provides cheerleading and guidance in the palm of the hand.

See the real-time impact of smoking

CO levels build with cigarette consumption, and decrease as smoking frequency is reduced. When used throughout the day, the Breath Sensor provides a numerical reading as to how much CO is in the breath, providing immediate affirmation of behavior change, encouraging members to improve or maintain a low CO reading.
