Fifth Sense

 

Fifth Sense is a new and innovative charity working to support sufferers of smell and taste-related disorders, and raising awareness of the importance of something that most of us take for granted - our sense of smell.  

 

It is thought that up to 5% of the population* - 3.25 million people - suffer from a loss or severe impairment of their sense of smell, yet until the existence of Fifth Sense patients had nowhere to turn for support and advice. There is very little understanding across the medical profession or indeed society as a whole of the impact of such disorders, with sufferers experiencing depression, feelings of isolation and relationship difficulties. Imagine the effect on your life if you could no longer experience the flavour of the food you eat, smell the flowers and trees on a summer's walk, or the scent of your partner's hair or skin?

 

Fifth Sense Founder Duncan Boak and Consultant ENT Surgeon Mr Carl Philpott of the Smell and Taste Clinic at James Paget Hospital are planning on undertaking the first national survey of smell-related disorders, helped by a device called the Scentee, which connects to smart phones or tablets and emits a fragrance in response to a signal from an app.

 

Please join Fifth Sense at the Cube to try the survey for yourself, and be prepared to answer the question: What Does Your Sense of Smell Mean to You?
