Meet the Medical Advisory Board Behind Evie Ring

Get an inside look at the medical professionals helping us raise the bar for women’s health technology.

You’ve heard about Evie Ring. But you may not know as much about the amazing team of women on our medical board helping us deliver on our mission to create world-class wearable technology, designed for women’s health.

From Movano Health to Evie Ring, we’re redefining the standard for women’s health technology

Evie Ring was developed through our parent company, Movano Health. At its core, Movano Health is a medical device company on a mission to make clinical-grade health data accessible and actionable for everyone.

It’s these roots in medical-grade technology that sets Evie apart. We want to make a true impact by empowering women with an easy-to-use tool to better understand their health and make changes they can measure (and feel!) in real-time.
