The why and who of Voliot

Mission and Values

voliot is founded on a premise that individuals should be able to get and use the data they create when they use devices and services to create data stories that are meaningful for them.

Starting with a premise of data portability as a fundamental right, we recognise that a fruitful consumer Internet of Things environment can only work if people can use their data for the long term, not just for the life of a device.

As users ourselves, we have bought devices to track health conditions, menstrual cycles, running, swimming, cycle, weights training - you name it.  But none of them come together in a way that helps you visualise the reason you're tracking.

 

We believe that is particularly to the detriment of women and those with chronic conditions in particular - as well as anyone who has wanted to track their fitness over extended periods of time.
