Who We Are

Uplift Cooperative is a partnership between Bluefin Technology Partners and Cantina, both award-winning companies with established histories of delivering high-quality and high-performing products. We have joined forces to help our clients navigate the complexities of creating innovative connected products and systems.

Healthcare and wellness are vital concerns for everyone. The rising costs of care, an aging population, and the need to focus on preventive care and wellness-supporting behaviors all put pressure on people and the healthcare system. The cost of treatment for chronic and lifestyle conditions is rising. The need to support an aging population is forcing the system to find new solutions and change how we approach health and wellness.

Connected devices and IoT can help everyone get better access to data and take actions that encourage preventive care. Better lifelong health, customized wellness, and lower costs are all available with advanced, user-focused technology. Uplift Cooperative raises your business to higher levels while improving quality of life for your customers. We bring complete solutions, including hardware, software, and experience design.
