Empathic Ltd

Hacking technology. Transforming lives


We’re a health technology company building the tools to objectively measure mental & physical health and wellness in real-time in order to promote behavioral change via the use of smart, empathic technologies.

We believe in creating tools that make the world a better place and that technologies we take for granted today are the platform that will dynamically shift the health & wellness of this generation and the next tomorrow.



Digital phenotyping is a multidisciplinary field of science, defined as the “moment-by-moment quantification of the individual-level human phenotype in situ using data from personal digital devices, ” in particular smartphones and smart devices.

We aim to leverage devices and data to achieve a real-time understanding of physical, social, structural & economic limitations that impact society and then use this data to empower positive behavior change.
