Wearable Product Development
Medical, e-Health & Sports
We create smart wearable products as we believe these products can support and improve people’s health, well-being and fitness. With our wearable product development services, we focus on solutions that prevent people from becoming ill or injured, increase the effect of medical treatment and pharmaceutics and stimulate people to live a healthier and fitter live.
2M has a long track-record in creating a wide variety of wearable products. 2M’s wearable product development is focused mostly on accurate and reliable measurement solutions for:
- medical applications,
With 2M’s expertise and modular building blocks we enable and accelerate your product’s time to market. It is our ambition to create the best products with maximum impact that add real value for its users.
Partner in wearable hardware development
We do the full product creation from beginning to end in close cooperation with the client.
The focus is on realization of hardware wearable including algorithm development, but we can create complete connected solutions including web/app and cloud.
Example Hybrid Printed & Conventional Electronics
- Translation of client application to implementation
- Design of printed electronics structure
- Electronics creation
- Firmware software creation
- Testing & integration with mobile app
- Electronics development including Bluetooth LE
- User Interface engine creation
- Firmware software development
- Algorithm creation and validation
- Product & radio certification
- Industrialization of electronics sub assembly
What makes 2M’s wearable product development unique?
Modular Building Blocks
2M has build a large basket of building blocks, which reduces development cost, time and keeps technical risks low.
Small & Flat
2M is experienced in miniaturization to create extremely small, flat and bendable solutions.
Low Power Design
We create solutions with long operating times. We are skilled in low power design, test and optimization strategies.
Experience with most wired and wireless connectivity techniques to send data to mobile device or base stations. Also (custom) antenna design.
Experts in smart algorithm creation and feature extraction to turn raw data into meaningful information. Signal processing for embedded solutions.
Use of 2M’s software platforms saves costs, time and risk. Our embedded platforms include low level drivers and middleware functionalities.
Mobile & Cloud
We offer complete connected solutions including mobile apps, cloud and web functionality.
Printed & Textile Electronics

Product Creation Process
1 Concept Definition
Joint understanding of problem, application & use context.
2 Proof of Concept
Focus on realizing & validating the core measurement function & algorithms.
Work in 2 steps (alpha & beta) towards the product including all user requirements.
Industrialization, certification. Making the product production & sales ready.
Flexible production depending on client and business. Setup by 2M for initial, small or midsize series to high-volume production in Asia.
Modular architectures & building blocks
