Working with us
Want to have an idea of the costs related to wearable development?
In general, we can help our clients in 3 ways, fitting different budgets:
Buy our Development Hardware
By providing you with our haptic development hardware (our ScienceSuit), you can benefit from our experience and expertise in haptics, saving you time and letting you focus on your own R&D projects.
Our ScienceSuit exists of a control module with a tactor string, Bluetooth and wired connectivity and includes software and templates to program your haptic signals and build custom constellations.
Hardware costs start at
€ 3950,- (excl. 21% VAT)
Wearable Brainstorm & Experience
You can pick the brains of our experienced team of hardware, software, textile, and/or haptic specialists, even for just a few hours or a few days and accelerate your concept development!
Come to our office and experience wearable technology, feel the different integration techniques and by the end of the session, you can walk away inspired, educated, with design options, a development plan and related budget, or even a Proof Of Concept!
Full day workhop with 2-3 specialists, starting at
€ 3500,- (excl. 21% VAT)
Wearable Development Services
We can help you develop your wearable from idea to market-ready product, or any stage in between. Do you need help with feasibility studies, design reviews, turn research papers into proof of concepts, making functional prototypes for testing?
We can do that and much more!
Cost indications per development phase*:
1. Feasibility Check /
5K – 10K
2. Proof of Concept development
10K – 20K
3. Pilot Samples
15K – 30K
4. Final Prototypes
40K – 100K
5. First Series production
20K – 70K
6. Scaled Production
20K – 70K
*Prices in Euros. These are rough estimates and strongly depend on the type of wearable and its complexity.

What our clients say about working with us
“Coming over from the States to do the Wearables Workshop with the Elitac Wearables team, boosted my development! Within the first day they created a functional prototype of my concept, so I could experience my concept for the first time ever since I had this idea!”Start-up | Haptic Suit
“The team quickly understood our needs, identified prototype weaknesses and suggested a variety of solutions to improve the design of our Skinetic vest.”Actronika | VR haptic Vest
“We are so happy to finally be working with a reliable partner. You deliver what you promise!”Danu Sports | Sports Performance Wearable
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.

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.

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.
