Is integrating with a wearable like the FitBit or a WiFi-enabled object something your project requires? Our team can help you select the best device to integrate with and work from start to finish on developing software that seamlessly connects the overall experience.

Firmware Service 

Whether your project is a standalone device or a fully networked platform, we can support you in building firmware that is robust, effective, and secure. With our full-stack knowledge base that spans from a single transistor to the cloud, we can write code for your devices that works seamlessly with other parts of your application.

Hardware Prototyping 

Before producing a new piece of hardware at scale, testing and feedback are crucial steps in our process. We take hardware design to the next level by prototyping to test viability and refining to ensure product goals are met.

Emerging Platforms 

If you’re looking to develop a solution based on bleeding-edge technology, such as augmented reality or virtual reality, our team of engineers can work with you to research and vet which platforms hold the most potential for your objectives.


In addition to our internal team and practice leads, we have an unparalleled group of intellectual partners we collaborate with when the time is right, committed to the shared goal of improving the ecosystem of health technology.
