We are a digital healthcare company specialized in building AI systems to monitor people’s health. Since 2013, we have been making beautifully designed wearables, software platforms and tools, and advanced algorithms, unlocking better health outcomes for thousands of people.
Our customers range from some of the world’s largest institutions to individual users who message us every day and tell us how our products changed their lives. Our newest wearable, EmbracePlus, is sponsored by NASA and will be used to monitor the health of the astronauts onboard the first ever manned mission to Mars. Pharmaceutical companies are using our research platform to fast-track the development of new treatments, while hundreds of academic researchers publish new discoveries on human behavior weekly, all made possible by our E4 smartband and software tools.
And we just partnered with the US’ Department of Health and Human Services to accelerate the release our wearable COVID-19 early detection system.
If you are looking to join a fast-paced growth environment and do meaningful work that can really make a change in people’s lives, keep reading.
We develop sensors to understand human behavior in real time and in real life, focused on chronic neurological diseases. Empatica has provided the first beautifully designed, affordable and medical-grade wearable that uses advanced machine learning analytics to detect and alert seizures in real-time with Embrace for people living with Epilepsy. Embrace is linked to the wearer’s mobile device with a Bluetooth Low Energy connection. Our Alert App sends a notification to designated caregivers when a seizure has been detected, indicating the GPS location to expedite assistance.
The Mate App, which works in conjunction with Alert, allows for the tracking and maintenance of an interactive seizure history as well as an insight into the daily physical and sleep activity of the Embrace wearer. We are working towards offering a more predictive dimension to increase the life saving potential of our technology.
Empatica has also designed and builds the E4 wristband as a wearable research device used by the world's best research institutions, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. Some of our past clients have been Nasa, MIT, Harvard and Microsoft, among hundreds of institutions. The E4 offers real-time physiological data acquisition through unobtrusive monitoring and software for in-depth analysis and visualization. Our clients have the opportunity to work with us to develop customized apps by using our mobile SDK and have access to raw data via our web portal.
