What We're Building

Sano’s mission is to help people live healthier lives by measuring the impact of dietary choices on the body. We believe that every body is unique, and that understanding this uniqueness is vital to understanding one's health.

We have created a biometric sensor patch and mobile app that together enable the painless detection of chemical metabolic data. The first application of this technology is continuous glucose sensing.

Currently, only the most severe diabetics have access to this technology, which is both complicated and costly. Sano’s technology seeks to change that. By creating medical-grade solutions that are painless and affordable, Sano will give everyone a chance to understand their unique biometric information and, in doing so, enjoy a more personalized approach to health and wellness.

We are driven to help people live healthier lives—whether it’s losing a few pounds, preventing a chronic condition, or simply making smarter, more informed choices about diet and exercise.
