Ahersla Health, Inc. is a women owned small business founded in 2021, incorporated in the state of Delaware and a registered New Jersey business. Our mission is to awaken the smell-health connection. We will do so by commercializing medical devices that are used to help diagnose health conditions and improve health and wellbeing through smell tests and olfactory therapy.
Life and research have already demonstrated the importance of smell loss. The sense of smell is an early warning sign for neurological disorder, a critical part of daily living – alerting us to fire and toxins, and a way to connect us to the world.
Our first product, SCENTinel™,is a patented test for smell loss. SCENTinel evaluates smell function on multiple dimensions including detection, identification, hedonic scale and intensity. Among its benefits, SCENTinel assesses olfactory function more rapidly than competitive products.
Ahersla Health, Inc. has important ties to the Monell Chemical Senses Center and Temple University–Of The Commonwealth System of Higher Education. We have access to the SCENTinel technology under an exclusive license. With great partners, investors, and innovations, Ahersla Health will build a strong business and change how olfaction is valued.
