Developing Wearable Technologies for All Demographics

Exponent's unique multidisciplinary approach to evaluating wearable technologies delivers valuable insights through all stages of the product lifecycle. Our biomechanics experts apply systematic analysis to examine long-term wear, product fit, movement dynamics, impacts of loading forces, anthropometry sensitivities, and other challenges.

How does Exponent's approach help you effectively understand design, development, and use challenges for wearables?

Developing "fit for purpose" wearable technologies that can serve large populations requires understanding the needs of individuals. Exponent helps you develop wearable technologies — from wrist and armbands to skin patches and medical devices — that address the needs of broad demographics across a range of use cases to help optimize individual user and health outcomes.

Design and development of wearables.

Exponent's multidisciplinary approach integrates our extensive expertise in biomechanics, human behavior, and data science with detailed knowledge of injury, disease, and cutting-edge intervention modalities to select optimal wearable technologies for "fit for purpose" solutions that are scalable and replicable. Our multidisciplinary teams also have broad expertise in biocompatibility and other challenges associated with materials selection, design, and development of wearables.

Wearable applications.

Wearable technology has the capacity to unlock far-reaching possibilities in the healthcare industry. Exponent's multidisciplinary teams provide solutions that leverage wearables to access value in clinical development, commercialization, and lifecycle management to enhance personalized patient outcomes.

Wearable technology can help demonstrate and optimize the value of clinical interventions, such as medical devices and implants, surgical procedures, pharmaceuticals, and other therapeutic approaches by providing critical data that enables you to effectively chart your product or process development. Exponent's multidisciplinary teams can support the effective design of such studies, ensuring appropriateness of methodologies and data integrity.
