Digital Health

Technology to Empower the Human Endeavor

Systems for the way we move through the world

BeBop’s intelligent fabric offers the Digital Health industry a new way of building human centered sensing experiences in real-time monitoring and physical behavior and performance analysis.

Most sensing devices today are designed from the outside-in; obtrusive, rigid, uncomfortable.  Fabric is purpose built for human forms, with the flexibility to move with us in the ways we move, whether in sickness or health.

Tempo Insole

The Tempo Insole reference design provides manufacturers across a broad range of use cases to see how a more flexible, integrated, portable insole can open up new experiences for users in the areas of health that can be hard to support with other solutions that require too many tradeoffs.


Tempo is a fully integrated smart insole using intelligent fabric sensing at its core.  With an IMU, all-day battery, and Qi charging system all packed into the insole, designers can experience the dynamism of this solution without worrying about loose pieces of hardware or a frustrating charging experience.  Android and Web app visualizers are available for on the go or lab based data viewing and logging.
