  • Agency : N/A
  • Place : Portugal
  • Sword Health, a Portuguese start-up founded in 2014
Objective / insight

Technology implemented
  • Very light motion trackers are used
  • Algorithms check the data provided by the motion trackers
  • An app provides real time feedback to the patient as well as to the therapist
  • 91% adherence to the program
  • 20% better performance compared to traditional therapy

  • $1.2 million grant from the EU
  • $4.6 million in seed funding
