About us

Delivering tomorrow’s chronic care solutions today.

Placing patients at the centre of our orbit.

The growing challenges in chronic care demand patient centric solutions. By placing patients at the center of our orbit, we are committed to enabling optimal care through breakthrough digital health innovations. At Orbit, we want to improve patients’ quality of life by giving them more control and symptom free time to live their life to the fullest. 

Today, doctors are mostly relying on a snapshot of information to manage chronic diseases. To personalize care, detailed and continuous information about individual patients is needed. At Orbit, we are harnessing the power of sensor and AI technologies to provide physicians with continuous and objective insights needed to optimize chronic care.

Our vision is to truly enable early intervention and cost- effective management of chronic conditions by integrating breakthrough digital health solutions into the current clinical workflows, and to empower patients to live their best possible life.

Time to be proactive.

Half the world’s adult population suffers from at least one chronic disease and this figure continues to rise. This not only impacts life expectancy but further challenges the sustainability of our healthcare system. To address this problem, many countries are transitioning chronic care from the current reactive institutional-care model to a more proactive home-care approach.

This transition will require new digital solutions to enable physicians to remotely monitor and perform interventions on an individual level; instilling in patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals a confidence that is both empowering and sustainable.

A 24/7 condition requires a 24/7 solution. We believe Orbit is part of that solution.
