Discover next-generation alcohol detection technology.
Through next-generation alcohol detection technology, we enable trust and empower recovery... with a human touch.
SOBRsafe’s advanced transdermal (touch-based) technology detects and reports in real-time the presence of alcohol as emitted through a user’s skin - no breath, blood, or urine samples are required. With a powerful backend data platform, SOBRsafe provides next generation, passive detection technology for both behavioral health providers and individual consumers.

The Science
SOBRsafe Technology: How it Works

What is Transdermal

  • The basic transdermal functionality has been validated by over 8o years of research – this is not new science (just an advanced approach).
  • As opposed to invasive testing like breath or blood, transdermal technologies detect alcohol through passive contact with the skin.
  • As humans process alcohol, a measurable amount gets released through our pores.
  • Transdermal, or touch-based, solutions can identify the presence of alcohol (“pass/fail”) for use in zero tolerance applications, as in alcohol recovery, family law or teen driver safety.

The SOBRsafe Difference

  • Our state-of-the-art transdermal sensor is highly precise, and is “tuned” for early, low alcohol detection – beginning at approximately 20 minutes, versus 45-60 minutes for the leading mandatory ankle monitor.
  • We detect the presence of alcohol at least equivalent to breathalyzers, and our technology detects alcohol in the body for longer than both breath and blood.
  • Our proprietary software acclimates to the wearer’s environment and calibrates to their individual physiology, ensuring greater accuracy and removing human error.

Proven Technology

  • Our sensor received an NIAAA grant award in 2017, and has received significant investment since 2019.
  • It has been in commercial use since the 2022 launch of SOBRcheck™ for stationary screening – that device has now reported over 100,000 alcohol-free scans.
  • Today, SOBRsafe is supporting more than 1 million device interactions per month.
