Thanks to the wonders of social media, I was able to contact patients all around the world to ask what their solutions were and the overwhelming response was just to get used to it. So I searched online and found various different components from different parts of industry. Flex sensors that came from the gaming market, accelerometers from mobile phones and Bluetooth module and thanks to the power of video and a friend I hacked together my first sensor.
That sensor became the start of 11Health. 11Health then grew in to a connected medical device company. We now have a fully functioning sensor that is CE marked, MRHA approved a class 1 device and is FDA cleared. Currently we are growing fairly rapidly in the US but still navigating the wonders of our NHS system.
