In the latest funding round, German startup Kaia Health raises € 7.22 M to fit physiotherapy on your mobile.

Nearly everything you need is available in the form of an app in this digital day and age, whether you order food, book tickets, or seek medical attention. But there are a few fields that remain hard to digitize and one such field is physiotherapy. However, Kaia Health, based in Germany, has succeeded in digitizing the method to give 2D movement monitoring technology. It allows customers to obtain real-time feedback from the camera of their smartphone on how they perform exercises.
Kaia Health has now announced that in its latest funding round it has secured € 7.22 million. Recently, Silicon Canals has been given a chance to chat with Konstantin Mehl, CEO of the company, and many have learned more about what the company plans to do next and more.
Kaia Health’s latest funding round was its Series A extension, where the company raised € 7.22 million as stated previously. Optum Ventures resulted from the funding round and the firm will use the new resources to accelerate its sales development in the U.S. healthcare industry, expand its platform into other chronic signs and expand the supporting clinical evidence base.
All startups are built around an idea, and Kaia is no exception. The founder of the company suffered from chronic back pain and ended up in a pain center for four weeks of full-time therapy, called multimodal pain therapy. This is where the idea was born for the Kaia app, and multimodal pain therapy is what the app digitizes and makes it available to everyone.
This app can help users relieve muscular disorders such as severe back pains. It covers many other aspects, such as physical exercises, physiotherapy, relaxation exercises, and give information about back pain. The app is currently available for a free 7-day trial, currently in English and German. More languages will be added by 2020.
The app has an AI-powered motion tracker which gives feedback about how well the patient is performing.
When the CEO was asked about the direction of where it was headed, he said that it is already a big player. Their goal is to integrate Kaia wherever a solution is required for patients with repeated back pain. They will also invest heavily in clinical research and build capacity for computer vision.
