Euan Bowen

Managing Director

Euan is our founder and managing director based in Edinburgh, UK. A current amateur rugby player and avid sportsperson, his background is in Product Design, graduating in 2018 from Edinburgh Napier University with a BDes (Hons) Product Design.

He continued his major project, HIT upon graduation, raising seed investment and his team to continue R&D of the HIT Impact device, a wearable tech and companion app measuring head impact g-force in realtime for users, designating a traffic light system to each impact force allowing for easier understanding and observation when to check for concussive symptoms.

His background in sport gives him a unique perspective of developing new tech in sport, viewing it from both sides of the fence. Looking at easy integration into the current flow and game, and from a developer side to marry up the huge potential HIT has to change the concussion game for the better.
