who we work with

from start-ups to some of the world's largest brands

The global wearable technology market size was estimated at $74 bn in 2022 and is projected to grow to $86 bn in 2023 (Grand View Research, 2021). We work with a range of innovators, entrepreneurs, established companies and, household brands to help them realise the potential of wearable technology.


Whether you’re looking to invent, ideate or iterate, our expert team can advise, lead and empower you along your wearables journey. As your digital development partner working across software, firmware, and hardware, we can add value to the whole of your digital landscape. We also manage software and app development projects to improve the user experience and can employ ML and AI technologies, providing a cohesive, end to end solution that takes the pain out of delivering a wearable technology enabled eco-system to market.

our mission

We exist to achieve huge gains in health and wellness on a global scale, improving and enhancing the wellbeing of people and our planet through predictive and preventative technology. Working in partnership with our clients, we enable them to turn great ideas into impactful, data-driven wearables.

We work with mission-aligned companies in the health and wellbeing industries who are looking to make the world a better place through wearable technology. We work with a range of companies from start-ups to some of the world's largest brands. Whether you are hardware agnostic, have an amazing software product but no hardware addition, or you’re looking to level up your existing device, our team of wearables experts are here to help guide your journey.

health tracking

Possibly the most obvious application of wearables is to monitor users’ physical health, from basic step tracking abilities and accelerometers which measure overall activity, to physiology signals, or a combination of them.


Whether the objective is to empower users to make informed lifestyle choices or to collect and monitor data to predict or even prevent future health complications, the possibilities are endless.

remote monitoring

More people are having to wait longer for care, meaning they are living with discomfort and frustration, and for some this may mean an avoidable deterioration in their health as well as overall worse health outcomes.


From remote vitals monitoring, and enhanced virtual ward support, to enabling recovery or for predictive and preventative data collection, to specific devices to increase safety in homes like fall detection and dementia care, wearable tech has an incredibly important part to play in increasing patient peace of mind outside of a hospital setting. 

mental health

Nearly one billion people are living with a mental health condition worldwide, and there is an incredibly high post-pandemic burnout rate globally. From devices that monitor stress levels and mood, to those that track activity and sleep, there are so many applications for wearable devices to support mental health.


Some examples even include monitoring changes in biometrics and offering guided interventions to reduce anxiety, and incredibly, brain stimulation technologies, which can help manage depression.


Readily available devices such as smart watches, fitness trackers, and step counters are the tip of the iceberg here, in what has always been a pioneering space, but one in which users have accepted inconvenient experiences in order to get access to valuable data. 


Fitness tech allows users to collect information and track progress, design smarter training plans, spot weaknesses, and predict negative outcomes. From power meters and heart rate monitors which link to training fatigue, optimal fitness, and personal plans based on effort and recovery; to femtech and female fitness specifically, gamification and community offerings, there are so many possibilities in this space.


Promoting the importance of physical and mental wellbeing through interactive devices is an increasingly advancing area.


Utilising tech to achieve a common understanding of what wellbeing is and the factors that affect it is one application.


And a range of devices and innovations exist to promote feelings of calm and manage stress responses through nerve stimulation, sound, and vibration, as well as touch therapy, which helps calm the nervous system.


A medical device can be an instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, or another similar article, that is intended for use in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease or other medical conditions.


Developing medical devices requires a range of regulatory compliance, which happens all the way from idea to deployment of the technology into a live environment. Thrive is audited under ISO 13485, is seeking full FDA clearance in 2023, and has a long history of working with physicians, practitioners, and the medical device industry. We have experience in the human microbiome, pain management, sports recovery, injury recovery, personalised medicine, hormone detection, and sweat monitoring, amongst many more areas.

Technology strategy

Leverage our technical expertise and navigate your development journey and route to market seamlessly. Reduce your project risk by establishing an informed revenue model, reducing time to market, building your IP portfolio and ultimately increasing confidence in your product.


Our Concept Prototype provides you with a first holistic embodiment of your product. Fast-tracking the prototype validation process saves time, cost and reduces risk later on. Our team will provide you with technical, cost and delivery projections, whilst capturing IP, optimising budgets and prioritising speed to market.


Whether you’re looking to add hardware to your current software technology, or are designing a complete product from the ground up, we can develop all aspects of the software and data processing stack alongside your wearable hardware.
