Our Story

Nexaware is dedicated to helping people with limited mobility live better lives. Our targeted monitoring products are designed to provide individuals, caregivers, and family members meaningful physiological data about their health and wellness. Nexaware seeks to bring next-generation wellness monitoring tools to the public, especially those who are at risk for disease, obesity, or weight-related illness due to the lack of availability of proper technology, starting with our flagship product, E-Scale.

Nexaware was created through InnovateTech, a venture creations firm which strives to bring together seed funding, high-potential university technology, and experienced management teams to create promising new startups.  E-Scale was invented by a team of students and faculty,  including  Jon Duvall, Jon Pearlman, Anand Mhatre and Rory Cooper, at the Human Engineering Research Laboratory (HERL), a joint operation between the University of Pittsburgh and the U.S. Veterans Administration Pittsburgh Healthcare system. Nexaware licensed the technology from Pitt and VA.  Nexaware is working with Pearlman and Duvall to refine the commercial development of E-Scale.
