The small team performing unique tasks

If you want to create something meaningful, you need time, money and, most importantly, willpower. Two friends, that embodied these three things sat down in 2015 to discuss what they wanted to do in the future.

Jussi had a vision and experience in the rehabilitation field through a family member. Joonas knew the business and had an extensive network. Both soon realized that technology can be utilized to help rehabilitation professionals support rehabilitees.

A vision of a solution included an exercise system that adapts to the personal needs of each rehabilitee. The rehabilitee puts on a virtual reality headset and enters a new world, full of variables and challenges. At the same time, they feel a sense of enthusiasm, while being suitably challenged by their exercises.

Jussi and Joonas quickly assembled a team of developers from their good friends: Timo had extensive experience as a VR developer and Hannu had a convincing record as a graphic designer.

The first step was to develop the demo and to present it to Matti Lehtihalmes, Emeritus Professor of Logopedics. The feedback they received supported the system’s need and vision, and the company was founded shortly after the meeting.

In 2016, the first customers joined the development and adopted the service. It wasn’t long before the customer base expanded all over Finland. To this day, we have been involved in helping hundreds of rehabilitees on their path to rehabilitation.

Active cooperation with researchers and universities were a part of the process, right from the start. We are constantly involved in several master’s and doctoral thesis studies, in which the possibilities of virtual reality as a part of neurological rehabilitation are processed.

After a few years of operation, we are already close to the original vision. In the spring of 2019, the home rehabilitation pilot project provided promising results, and, together with our partners, we are constantly refining our understanding of the process.
