About us

Buddi overview

Buddi is an innovative, high-growth, British technology company, which was founded in 2005 by entrepreneur Sara Murray OBE.

We began by developing state-of-the-art, proprietary mobile technologies for locating vulnerable individuals. Today, Buddi provides technologies to support service users across more than 80% of UK local authorities, as well as to Government customers around the world.

As people's needs change, Buddi uses developments in technology to create new and improved products and services to meet those needs. Our newest offering, Buddi Connect, is a sleek wristband with an advanced fall alert system, which puts the user back in charge. It can be tailored to individual activity and enables the user to create and cancel alerts, or just buzz connections for fun.

We believe that this new technology, when combined with a smartphone, will have a significant impact on enabling healthier, happier and more connected lives.

Many of the Buddi team have personal experiences of family and friends who are keen to maintain their independence and to continue to live fulfilled lives in their retirement. We are all aware of the risks of falling and the horror stories, which follow people who fall on their own.

Our team is motivated to develop new technologies and systems that will help people to live more active and connected lives. Our research and development is concentrated on breakthrough solutions, which will also aid in other areas of healthcare, including diabetes prevention.

We are proud to design and assemble all our products in the UK, using our own team of highly skilled engineers.
