Digital healthcare meets gamification.
We are developing software that combines evidence-based therapy at home with your favorite entertainment.
Therapy at home does not work because patients lack guidance and motivation. Akina provides both through a digital application.
Digital coaching – our AI motion analysis and exercise planning algorithms assure that movements are performed safely and effectively.
Gamification – Akina connects therapeutic movements to the controls of popular cloud games and interactive cloud content to turn repetitive exercise into a fascinating journey.
We are convinced that long-term patient success comes from education and compelling motivation - not from external control.
Akina develops technology that takes patients on an immersive digital journey while fast-tracking recovery. Because we believe that getting better should be fun.
