About xbird

xbird is an award-winning medical artificial intelligence company. We work collaboratively to make a difference. Our team includes doctors, dog sitters, engineers, gamers, managers, musicians, kickers, and kitesurfers. We value our diverse experiences and backgrounds.

We develop ways to use smartphones and wearables to predict and prevent health risks. Our technology captures data streams from the built-in sensors in smartphones and wearables, and translates these into activities and behavioural patterns. With this information, we are able to support the patients in their therapy, giving them the right information at the right time. Ultimately we help patients follow their doctor’s advice – helping them to get well again, faster.
