We want to make health research accessible to anyone

We are a nonprofit organization on a mission to make health research accessible to anyone by providing affordable research tools, making everything from data collection to analytics effortless.
As Researchers and Scientists, we believe more research in health and science is the key to progress. And as the internet has revolutionized collaboration, technology has been improving at a breakneck pace. We’ve seen huge improvements in consumer electronic products, from technology to design and experience—becoming better and cheaper at the same time. However, it seems that medical research and, specifically, research tools have been left behind. We are on a mission to change that.
Building affordable, state-of-the-art electronic devices, and a data collection, research management tool built for you. We believe the more people we can get to pursue this passion, the more collaboration we can have, the better off the world will be.
Exciting developments that have allowed for PhysioQ to arise
The Book of Daniel holds one of the earliest recorded examples of classical experimental design.
First recorded clinical trial
Experimental Physiology is born
Galen, widely referred to as the founder of experimental physiology, was the first to derive information about body systems from experimentation.
The 10 points of the Nuremberg Code set the first International guidance on ethics of medical research.
Nuremberg Code guides research ethics
Mainframes enter the lab
Some institutions started installing large mainframe computers at research sites so that clinicians could take charge of data entry.
Mobile technology allows data to be collected remotely through mobile applications and wearable health devices rather than in person.
Mobile technology boom
PhysioQ is born
PhysioQ embarks on its journey to make physiological research accessible to everyone.
Our Mission
PhysioQ believes the pursuit of knowledge and advancement of scientific research--as well as the engagement of citizens in the scientific process--is the path to a better society. PhysioQ provides affordable and easy-to-learn research tools, allowing anyone, from academic researchers to everyday citizens, to conduct health research and further their passion for health science.

Our Objectives
1. To create and distribute tools that can help the scientific research process (ie. tools facilitating data collection to analytics)
2. To support and engage the public in scientific discourse 
3. To support STEM learning and engagement with youth.
The PhysioQ pledge
Society places a trust in researchers and scientists to pursue knowledge in a manner that respects the values of beneficence, freedom from exploitation, fairness, honesty, and justice. As a non-profit that facilitates access to physiological research, we believe it is also our responsibility to help promote and uphold these ethical values. These values are characterised through all of PhysioQ’s projects as well as in our following 2 promises: 
Affordability
Our goal is to make physiological research accessible to everyone, and with that means affordability. Big or small lab, you deserve to be able to perform your research.
Responsible stewardship of data
Respect for human dignity extends not only to the person but also to his/her personal information. We believe that an individual’s personal health data, is just that - personal.
