Lifestyle, wellbeing & wearables

We’re all becoming increasingly aware of the physical and mental benefits of good health and how it can deliver a high quality of life. This is driving a surge in demand for wearable technology and other personal healthcare products which enable us to monitor and improve aspects of our health. Innovation in technologies related to lifestyle and wellbeing continues to grow and diversify into areas including femtech, XR and apps. If you're innovating in this exciting sector, registering IP rights will encourage competitive product development while distinguishing and safeguarding your brand — protecting your investment or helping to secure essential funding to bring your innovative products to market. Our dedicated lifestyle, wellbeing and wearables team has the experience to partner with you to navigate this increasingly crowded sector.
