In our search for startups founded by students from Amsterdam, healthtech startup Fysio24 popped up on our radar. While the physiotherapy-app provider based itself at the Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen after participating in Rockstart’s Digital Health program, co-founder Janno Barlage actually used to study physiotherapy at HvA’s University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. Barlage, who founded Fysio 24 with Chris Uythoven in 2013, also used to work at the HvA as a physiotherapy teacher.
Fysio24’s app helps athletes to prevent injuries and also helps them to recover from running injuries. Instead of searching online and wasting time to find information, you can find it all in the app of Fysio24. Accurate and professional information along with exercises approved by physio specialists as well as inspirational and motivational programs to help the customer further. And of course Fysio24 wants to prevent users from getting wrong advice that could worsen injuries. At first glance the app seems similar to that of Fittech startup Fitmo, but as this sportstech startup mainly offers training programs, the apps of Fysio24 and Fitmo can happily coexist and supplement eachother on your phone.
