We connect technology with people to design a better health experience.

Karten Design is a product design and innovation consultancy with over 30 years of experience partnering with medical and consumer companies to build their business through design.

We leverage our team’s long history in designing consumer products to bring an added focus on people and emotion to the healthcare market. The results are medical devices and digital health solutions that emotionally engage their users. We inspire users to buy in at a deep emotional level, which motivates behavior change, increases adherence, enables better health outcomes, and ultimately improves lives.
