We are a patient-centered R&D workshop
We create technology at the intersection of patient and market needs
At Sproutel we collaborate with companies to co-develop products that achieve health outcomes and help brands tell powerful stories. With a network of global experts, we are capable of supporting collaborators through every step of the process, from ethnographic research to engineering and from market strategy to manufacturing.

We are continuously developing new products through insight driven R&D and ethnographic deep dives into audacious healthcare challenges. We leverage this R&D to help our partners chart a patient centered product roadmap and develop innovations with impact. A specific area of our focus lies in companion robots for people with illness.
Our product development is powered by a proprietary patient-centered empathy driven design process.
We work with families to understand how health is managed at home, directly with kids to understand what they perceive, and collaborate with medical experts to synthesize best practices in care.
We create visual frameworks to easily digest, contextualize, and communicate the information learned through our interview process. Using these tools we synthesize key insights to guide our development process.
Prototype, Test, Iterate
We start with a range of low tech prototypes to refine our concept. Next, with internal capacity spanning from hardware to app development to augmented reality, we get our hands dirty to build functional concepts to test with users.
Impact and Scale
Once we’ve identified solutions that resonate with users we develop, manufacture, and deploy. We also work with partner hospitals to conduct health impact analysis on the products we create.
