Empatica EmbracePlus

EmbracePlus is the world’s most compact, and versatile health smartwatch. Embrace is used to remotely collect and monitor a broad range of physiological data and health conditions, from vital signs and sleep patterns to respiratory infections (including COVID-19). Researchers can use EmbracePlus alongside Empatica’s digital biomarkers to remotely collect patient data during clinical trials. Healthcare professionals can use it to remotely and continuously monitor their patient’s particular health conditions. Considering its multipurpose usage and wide target user group, we created a universally appealing form, material, and color composition for this product design. We also wanted to avoid the stigma of a healthcare device, so we made it as elegant as a fashionable watch. NASA intends to use EmbracePlus to monitor astronaut health on their first manned mission to Mars, which would be Whipsaw’s first extraterrestrial design.
