Glenn Riseley, HeadUp founder and CEO, spent 14 years in the corporate wellness sector developing a world-class program for global businesses to improve the wellbeing of their employees.

Bringing the HeadUp vision to fruition

Armed with the knowledge that innovative tech would be the key to a new era in healthcare, Glenn began thinking of a way to consolidate wearable device data, information from doctors, and personal health observations. Very soon, the idea of a ‘human dashboard’ was born. He enlisted a team of data scientists, user experience and product specialists, and coders, to bring it to life. First, they built algorithms to process the health data found on people’s wearable devices. The idea was that the algorithms would trawl through a person’s data to uncover interesting patterns and trends, as well as any problem areas – and feed this information back to a dashboard. That way, at one glance, anyone could see how their health was tracking, where it should be, and most importantly, how to improve it. The most natural thing to do was to package the human dashboard into an app so that people could easily access their personalised health information. But before this could happen, the algorithms needed to be tested.
