Looking out for workers in anew decentralised office world

For media enquiries please contact: info@vitruehealth.com

Even before Covid-19 40% of workplace absence was due to musculoskeletal problems. Ergonomic assessment of workspaces are one of the best tools to combat this. However in person assessments are almost impossible with remote workers. Vitrue VIDA provides the solution.

Vitrue VIDA provides fully self served, in depth desk assessments using a combination of adaptive questionnaires, webcam assessments using computer vision technology (developed for injury assessment in elite sports) and advanced recommendation engines. Users are given beautiful, engaging and comprehensive desk assessments with no labour cost.

 

Our mission is to improve the wellbeing of millions of desk workers.

  • 64% of office workers believe that their desk environment has a negative impact on their wellbeing.

  • 45% of workers believe that this is because their employers do not know how to set their equipment up properly.

  • Roughly one quarter of workers say that they feel aches and pains at the end of the day at their desk.

  • 26% feel that their desk setups make them less productive.

 

And all of this was before Covid-19 caused a seismic shift in the number of people working remotely without any ergonomic desk setup.

 

Post Covid-19 86% of people say that they want to work somewhere other than the office at least once a week (home, coworking, cafe, abroad). This new mobile workforce will cause huge problems in ensuring workers have optimal desk setups and could lead to an explosion in musculoskeletal issues, loss in productivity and overall wellness. The traditional models of in person desk assessment will not work in this new world. Remote solutions like video calls or pdf self assessments are labour intensive when you consider a multitude of working locations or very difficult to engage with and obtain actionable data.

 

Vitrue VIDA’s interactive, engaging and personalised assessments and recommendations allow you to provide employers with frequent, adaptive assessments that fit any particular worker’s habits at scale for no labour cost.

At Vitrue Health our mission is to revolutionise the diagnostic tools available for musculoskeletal issues.

Partly motivated by the disruption to working life we experienced in our own team due to Covid-19, we adapted our core IP from our musculoskeletal diagnostics products to solve the problem of non ideal remote working setups and their affects on physical and mental health. 

Founded in 2017 we're a Techstars Accelerator alumni and work with world leading surgeons and professional sports clubs on injury treatment and prevention.
