What The Tech Episode 52: “The insights are where the magic lives” with Quin Sandler of Plantiga

Plantiga was born in 2015 from the idea that human analytics could help people move better and be happier.

While consumer apps and wearables like watches and bands had become commonplace, these single-point solutions continued to fall short. They lacked the accuracy, quality, technical savvy, and solution breadth needed for both sports and medical professionals to truly understand and work toward movement optimization. What had been missing was technical data combined with the human component— human coaching, a human expert interpreting the data and providing rich and additive feedback and counsel to help drive a comprehensive approach and plan.

Enter Plantiga, a business that was born from the idea that human analytics could help people move better and be happier.

On this episode of What The Tech, we welcome Quin Sandler, Plantiga’s Co-founder and CEO. Quin’s team is on a mission to optimize human performance, resilience and recovery through the monitoring and analysis of biomechanics—that is, a person’s unique movement patterns. 

The Plantiga platform combines an advanced sensor insole that measures how a person moves so they can maximize their health, recovery and performance. Combining predictive analytics and applied sport science, Plantiga supports hundreds of teams, trainers and athletes – in sport and life. 

As impressive as that mission is at Plantiga, Quin’s experience in the Canadian startup ecosystem is extensive and mighty as well. As the latest serial entrepreneur to join our show, Quin has founded companies in online learning, coaching and digital branding. He’s most recently spent more than a decade in the wearable space, where he brings a wealth of experience in product design, development and branding that truly sets Plantiga apart.

Quin has also been an amazing Boast customer and partner, and an incredible resource across the Vancouver tech ecosystem and beyond. We pick his brain on the work he’s done to date, his path to success, and what’s next for Plantiga. 

World’s largest biometric dataset

The team at Plantiga have amassed the largest dataset of high-quality biomechanics in the field of any predictive, wearables solutions. 

While Plantiga is a hardware-based company given the nature of wearables, the magic of their solution lives in the software, machine learning and insights that users can act on. 

More liquidity and maximized returns

Working with Boast for SRED tax credits has saved Quin Sandler and the Plantiga team countless hours capturing a return on their investments through non-dilutive government funding. 

A process that would normally span tech, finance and product teams is now handled by Boast, who streamlines the work of collecting key data through AI and automation through our tech-enabled services. 

Just like the innovative businesses we work with, Boast embraces technology to make the work we do stronger and derive greater outcomes. 

There’s no limit to the upside you’ll see with data and AI, and you want to work with an R&D tax company that sees that reality.
