Smart use of space is critical in wearable technology. Therefore, batteries must be efficient and provide high energy density. We assist with the design and manufacture of power sources to meet the precise product requirements of small form factor devices.
Prototyping is a key process in the development of wearable technology. Above all, it allows for end-user research, fine-tuning of the user experience and can increase the value proposition of your product. Our prototyping processes provide a firm foundation for product validation, data collection and cost-cutting.
We provide consulting and support throughout the manufacturing process. Our production management team is dedicated to maintaining and improving product quality while reducing manufacturing costs and lead times.
