Hocoma and Valedo

“I suffered from low back pain myself for many, many years...”
Dr. Gery Colombo, CEO Hocoma

Low Back Therapy and Valedo

Our challenge was to turn the rather boring nature of many effective back exercises into a fun and motivating experience. So we designed Valedo as a medically viable solution for unspecific back pain sufferers to teach them how to improve movement awareness of back, fine muscle control and spinal stability with specially designed therapeutic exercises which are entertaining and motivating. We gamified back exercise.

It is not only developed by professionals, it is also used by professionals

We developed the Valedo Therapy Concept and created complementary products for a healthy back.
ValedoShape and ValedoMotion are used by therapists, Valedo is designed for home use. With this holistic concept we offer a continuous solution for a healthy back, ranging from spine assessment and functional exercise training in a clinic to continuing therapy at home.
