Inspiration & Innovation consultancy
We can inspire you by showing the possibilities of wearable technology for your company, we can help you select the right integration technology for your wearable, or have a workshop to show example products and roughly prototype your ideas, and much, much more.
With our experienced team of hardware, software, textile, and engineering specialists, we can help you develop your wearable from idea to market-ready product. We collaborate with your team providing expert knowledge on one or more key specialisms of wearable technology, or provide full-service development. See our case studies for an impression.
Helping you to develop your meaningful wearable
from idea to market-ready product, by providing expert knowledge on:
Integrating electronics & textiles
We have over 10 years’ experience developing successful wearables for various sectors. This experience allows us to guide you to select the right integration technique for your project, and we have the right partners and suppliers to bring your idea to reality.
We have a strong network of wearable technology research institutes, to ensure we are always up to date with the latest developments.
All specialisms needed for wearable development (in-house)
We have all the required facilities and disciplines in-house to help customers develop products from idea all to the way to a successful, market-ready product, including hardware and software development, textile, and product design.
Our Agile development process and proprietary operating system (TacOS) minimise risk and allow us to turn customers’ ideas into reality faster.
Sensor & actuator selection
We specialise in haptic feedback systems and have a broad experience in sensor and actuator selection and implementation.
By investing continuously in research we ensure that we are always at the forefront of new technological developments.

Our development process
From idea to market-ready product or any step in between, we can assist clients with product development at any stage of the wearable development cycle: Whether it is turning an idea into a Proof of Concept to acquire funding, developing an existing Proof of Concept into a prototype for user testing and validation, or helping partners iron out the final wrinkles before scaling up production. The Elitac Wearables development process is specifically designed to maximise predictability and minimise risk.

Why clients choose us as their development partner
We have developed several successful wearables for the safety, health and sports sectors. Even though the wearables we develop utilise the newest and experimental techniques and materials, our experience allows us to accurately plan the development process and deliverables. This minimises risk and upfront investments for our partners.
Wearable technology improves continuously as a results of new scientific insights and the development of new materials. To ensure we are always up-to-date on the latest techniques, we invest significant time and resources in research. We partner with several universities, hospitals and research institutes from around the world to translate results from scientific research into practical applications.
We have a multi-disciplinary internal development team consisting of hardware, software, industrial and soft goods design, marketing and business development experts. We only rely on external parties for raw materials. The fact that each discipline is involved in every step of the development process means that the end result makes sense from all perspectives.
We have developed hardware and software building blocks that allow us to produce prototypes more cost-effectively and in shorter time frames. For example, we have several integration techniques ready for application and our proprietary/custom OS ‘TacOS’ allows for faster, cheaper and more compact wearable development.
We have a 180m2 state-of-the-art Wearables Lab with all the equipment required to develop wearables. The entire product development cycle can be handled in-house: from idea to prototyping, to limited production (up to 100 pieces). For production at a larger scale, we have a reliable network of manufacturing partners.
