Description

ABOUT US

Nix is changing the way humans practice healthcare – from the episodic sick-care of today to an agile self-health practice of tomorrow. We are doing this by delivering validated and intuitive tools that empower consumers to access, understand, and act on their personal biology in real-time, outside a traditional healthcare setting. Our hydration biosensor delivers validated health and wellness data to the user with a strong focus on customer journey and a design-driven experience.

Our initial product is a hydration biosensor that informs athletes, soldiers, and laborers when, what, and how much to drink, based on sweat biomarkers – providing a personalized, actionable hydration strategy in real-time, and taking the guessing out of hydration. Our sensor wirelessly connects to the smart device of the user’s choosing, providing real-time data, post-workout analytics and projecting future fluid and electrolyte losses in a given environment to prescribe a bespoke hydration strategy. Our initial customer is the amateur endurance athlete (running, cycling, triathlon), expanding to team sports athletes, military, and laborer markets. We are a team of all-around athletes, both in the office and on the field, road, and water
