MoveSole & Prodigo – A partnership for marketing MoveSole devices in the Swiss healthcare market
MoveSole has signed a representation agreement with Prodigo Sàrl to open new business opportunities for MoveSole in Europe. Prodigo (www.prodigo.ch) is a Swiss business development company that supports firms in their expansion on the Swiss market.
Eero Kaikkonen, CEO, is very pleased with the incipient partnership: ‘In many ways, Switzerland is a very interesting market for us. Compared to the Finnish market the Swiss healthcare market is more advanced in terms of how they accept and implement new technological solutions in their health and wellbeing processes. We see good business potential for both of our products, MoveSole StepLab and MoveSole Research. In Switzerland, there are more than 10 000 physiotherapists, and indeed they are the most important and appealing professionals for MoveSole StepLab. And for MoveSole Research, there are several universities and research organizations whose research capabilities are world class in health and especially in gait analysis.’
Even though we are taking so far only the first steps together, we have full confidence in Prodigo team to build new business opportunities for us in the Swiss market, and we are looking forward to our partnership in future, says Eero Kaikkonen.
Prodigo team has an extremely wide experience in business development and operations in the Swiss business market.
Michel Patteet, managing partner of Prodigo, sees a lot of opportunities for MoveSole products in Switzerland:
‘The MoveSole devices are technologically advanced products. Given their wide range of applications in various healthcare and sports fields, we are convinced that MoveSole’s products have a big potential in the Swiss market.’
MoveSole devices are mobile measurement devices based on sensor technology. MoveSole StepLab is designed for providing average measurement results over the whole measurement session, and MoveSole Research detailed step data for deep analysis when every step counts.
Use cases for MoveSole devices are almost unlimited for preventive and rehabilitation purposes. They can include cases such as following the recovery process of lower limb injuries or malfunctions, monitoring offload treatment of diabetic foot ulcers as well as analyzing the influence of performed activities among elderly people to support their quality of life. Also coaches and users can benefit from MoveSole measurement devices in sports and exercise.
