We work with the top 1% of physiotherapists to provide an exclusive remote monitoring service for the most competitive sportsmen in various fields. Knee injuries are the most common in the entire sports medicine market and athletes can't perform their recovery for months overseas. Our goals are to expand therapist's services globally and to provide exclusive access to them for professional players, which otherwise would spend tens of thousands of dollars on plane tickets and accommodation.
The Hardware MVP will be completed in three to four weeks. We are looking to add front and backend developers to our team for the software solution. We have one client (which acts also as a medical partner) waiting for the product in Cluj-Napoca and we are preparing new interviews next week with several NBA and Polish therapists.
The global sports medicine market is continuously growing and it's expected to reach $9.6 Billions by 2024. The knee injuries market is estimated at $2.7 Billions (knee injuries are the nr. 1 problem in the entire sports medicine market). Our customers are physiotherapists from popular sports leagues (NBA, European Football Leagues) with a strong reputation and more than a decade of experience. The players are the users of this service.
Problem or Opportunity
Therapists waste time travelling to other cities or countries when their service is requested to a different location, which also creates an imbalance in their personal life. If therapists aren't the ones who travel, then it's the players who have to relocate for several weeks or months in order to undergo the recovery process. This relocating comes with pain points that include high costs and time wasted on the road. Both therapists and players would like it if there was a way for them to complete the process together without either of them having to relocate or spend extra money on travelling and accommodation.
Solution (product or service)
We provide players with a knee device that tracks medical parameters and mobile application which displays exercises that their therapist recommended. This way therapists can always keep an eye on their patients no matter which country they live in.
Some other startups focus on providing late stage recovery solutions, consisting only of tracking the knee's range of motion. We can providing monitoring of muscular contraction and alignment which will tell us if the exercises are done correctly. There's also competitors who provide very large machines and devices which will only allow recovery to be performed in clinic and that's a very big inconvenience for players.
Advantages or differentiators
No one is currently providing such an exclusive service from what we know so far. The differentiator would be that we can become the first company to enroll the best therapists and also the one with the best brand. We would be the only ones providing exclusive access to the top physiotherapists in the world. We can also differentiate ourselves by providing full service for the entire recovery process.
