Our business model is a joint digital physical therapy solution and ecosystem focusing on rehabilitation services. The Ecosystem consists of exercise, award, IoT, user profile and analytics managements. This gamified solution dedicated especially for elderly can be used both in prevention and rehabilitation. Our cost-effective solution is designed especially for B2B markets (e.g. insurance companies in the center).

We are piloting our competitive ecosystem solution in a close cooperation with European partners (Horizon 2020), and with Finnish and Asian partners (Business Finland).

Our solution is interoperable, cost-effective and it has a significant impact in future digital elderly care.
