Salu Pulse+ Crowdfunding Video

Salu is a health and wellness company. Started by a team of medical industry experts, industrial designers, software developers, and engineers, we are dedicated to helping everyday-people become healthier.


We design our products to engage humanity to become healthier. Wearable devices that simply record numbers and collect data for people don’t inspire or engage people to become healthier. We wanted more from our wearable devices because we understand how challenging it can be to achieve health goals. Our products empower users with engaging tools, integrated wearable sensors, advanced analytical computing, a design that fits into everyday life, and simple yet powerful recommendations that were created by medical professionals for everyday-people to realize a better state of health.
