In a third of cases cancer is discovered by chance in A&E. It’s a similar story for many life-threatening illnesses such as chronic kidney disease and diabetes.
Too often we don’t realise we’re seriously ill until something is discovered by accident – when it’s too late.
Our mission is to change this by bringing early detection to the comfort of our homes. This allows prompt medical treatment and radically improves chances of survival.
Many serious illnesses can be avoided altogether if we have access to key insights into our health. Early provides this information too, so we can make timely changes to our lifestyle.
We do this with devices that are accurate, easy to use and beautiful. In other words, devices that fit into our regular routines, so we can get on with our long and healthy lives.
We believe the partnership between design, science and technology creates products which people use and love. We are a team of leading designers, scientists and engineers reinventing home testing.
D-J has worked for and advised many of the world’s most successful technology companies on their storytelling including Google, Meta and Amazon.
