Who we are

The Nix team is dedicated to taking the guessing out of hydration. We are athletes, engineers, creative thinkers, and scientists driven to develop new technology to optimize human performance. 

Nix is a consumer diagnostic company taking a materials science approach to develop single-use biosensing wearable technologies. Nix is leveraging its platform toward a pipeline of proprietary and partnered programs beginning with hydration for athletes and extending to other consumer use cases in areas such as beauty, sports, nutrition, and infant care. Our initial product is a hydration biosensor that informs athletes, soldiers, and laborers when to drink, what to drink, and how much to drink, based on sweat biomarkers – providing actionable information in real-time.
