What we offer

DigiRehab is innovative welfare technology for every day rehabilitation of elderly citizens. Our digital training- and analysis tool provides training programmes specifically designed to increase the physical strength of elderly citizens and thereby decrease the need for home care. With DigiRehab's tools it is also possible to monitor the effect of the rehabilitation efforts both for the individual citizen and within the municipality in general.


Training before home care
In the municipality of Aalborg, DigiRehab is used as a valuable training tool in the concept: Training before home care.
A successful trial has recently paved the way for a larger implementation of DigiRehab in Aalborg.
The trial with 75 citizens showed the following results:
For the group of citizens (63%) that completed the 12 weeks of training the need for home care increased on average with 88 minutes/week/citizen.
12 months after the training period 90 % of these citizens still had a reduced need for help – on average 64 minutes/week/citizen.
DigiRehab is also used in several other Danish municipalities.

DigiRehab – a 12-week program which reduces the need for home care
Vejen Municipality experiences great results with digital training that helps improve quality of life for the elderly and decreases their need for home care in just 12 weeks. Physical exercise has a great impact on elderly citizens’ quality of life. It increases their ability to master everyday life and can reduce the need for home-care assistance. In Vejen Municipality, in the Region of Southern Denmark, a cost effective digital-training platform, DigiRehab, for at-home rehabilitation and physical exercise has been implemented. The tablet-based solution tests citizens’ physical ability and provides them with a tailored exercise program, supported by an algorithm. The exercises are performed twice a week in citizens’ own homes, assisted by instructional videos and supervision by the caregiver. “The exercises make elderly citizens more self-reliant and improve their quality of life. At our municipality, the overall need for home care has not increased despite a growing number of elderly citizens. This initiative is part of the reason. It has also changed the way
both staff and citizens think about rehabilitation. Elderly citizens have learned how training can improve their quality of life.” – Line Ballisager Juhl, Team Leader of Home Care in Vejen Municipality. After 12 weeks of exercise with the tailored programs, the average citizen’s need for home care decreases with 45 minutes per week.
