The Company

Nurvv is developing a wearable sensing technology that enables monitoring physical gait and body health with sports, ageing, and healthcare applications.

R&D Focus:

Nurvv’s patented sensor-driven data collectors can measure pronation, calories and force from the foot. The collected data has infinite uses for general fitness, injury prevention and rehabilitation through to general medical well-being.

We aim to develop the next generation of Nurvv’s patented technology and work with commercial partners to develop prototypes to increase the sustainability of the product.

The project will launch in autumn 2021.
