About Acurable

Acurable is a fast-growing, venture backed MedTech start-up with offices in London and Seville. We create accurate and user-friendly wearable medical devices intended to be used by patients at home.

Our award-winning, patented technology enables for the first time the automated diagnosis and management of respiratory conditions. It is the product of more than 10 years’ research at Imperial College London by Acurable’s founder, Professor Esther Rodriguez Villegas, and has been recognised as a breakthrough in respiratory medicine. AcuPebble has won some of the most respected awards in the industry, among them an XPrize, a Med-Tech Innovation Award and a WA4STEAM Award, to name just a few. The technology, our company and team are also frequently featured in national and global media. Recent examples include BBC News, Bloomberg TV, Fox News and Techcrunch.

In 2020 our first product, AcuPebble SA100, became the first medical device in the world to obtain the CE mark for the automated diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea at home, and a few months later the product gained FDA clearance for home sleep apnoea testing in the US. AcuPebble SA100 is now in use within healthcare organisations across the UK and Europe, and will be launching in the USA in the coming months. At the same time we continue our research to develop new products that will fundamentally improve the lives of millions of people suffering from serious chronic conditions such as COPD, Asthma and Epilepsy.

We’re a small but fast-growing company with big ambitions. To achieve them, we’re building a team of exceptional people who are inspired by our vision, share our values, and who have the attitude and skills required to help Acurable succeed. In return, we provide a fun, challenging and inspiring work environment where you can make a huge difference to the lives of millions of people worldwide.
