Celery Health has developed a novel approach to providing adult social care which has evolved over a number of years and through a series of design projects. Below are the details of some of the projects which we feel reflect our key values as a company and what we have learnt works when building services for people not only patients.
Clearblue pregnancy test
In 1989, our founder Mike Pearson designed the Clearblue pregnancy test with Unilever. One of the first consumer devices to capture digital health data.
Persona Contraceptive system
Unilever commissioned Mike to continue research into health data leading to the development of the Persona contraceptive system.
Circles of Care
Orange, then a mobile phone leader commission research ‘defining Value Circles in health’. We identified clear, circular, overlapping patterns as to how health issues are addressed within family and community circles. We also identified the opportunity for new internet/digital technologies to enhance the Circle of Care by offering services that are tailored to fit any individual’s circles.
Department of Health research
The Research & Development Director of the Department of Health (DH) commissions a study from Celery into the mechanisms that ensure the beneficial use of health data.
Health For MySelf
Development of a Health ecosystem that uses feedback from multiple devices to improve an individual’s health and build novel epidemiological insights.
Mike helped design MonitorMe, a landline telephone complete with a number of sensors for the capture of vital signs.
Finally we arrive at Celery, our combination of service - supporting those in need of care - with device which accurately measures temperature,tracks health and spots exacerbations early.
