About Us

Bonbouton is a medical technology company that has developed a smart insole that detects foot ulcers, a common cause of diabetes-related amputations. It’s comfortable to wear, simple to use, and can help prevent the approximately 200 amputations that occur in the United States daily, which costs our healthcare system $15B every year.

Our current focus is the smart insole and companion app, our first remote-monitoring, preventative health tool to empower healthier lives. Our long-term vision is to use our patented sensing technology in an array of other products that promote better well-being.


Our Mission: To advance human well-being by making useful tools that harness body signals

Our Vision: To sense the invisible and enable every human to live a healthier life

“Why Bonbouton?”

Great question! Bonbouton comes from the French translation of "good button," which, to us, represents a centralized data collection platform that connects to all textile-based sensors and acts as a line of defense for preventive healthcare. We strive to provide preventive health solutions that promote healthier lives while leveraging wearable graphene sensors and connected software. All in all, Bonbouton wants to be the good button that patients trust to monitor their health and livelihood.
