Motekforce Link welcomes Hocoma as a new partner.

We are pleased to inform you that Motekforce Link welcomes Hocoma as a new partner within DIH International. Hocoma is the global market leader for the development, manufacturing and marketing of robotic and sensor based devices for functional movement therapy. The Swiss based medical technology company was founded in the year 1996. Hocoma develops innovative therapy solutions working closely with leading clinics and research centers.

Hocoma is merging with DIH International, a corporate holding group from Hong Kong with offices in China, South Korea, the US and the Netherlands. DIH International focuses on rehabilitation solutions and medication management. Within its rehabilitation unit, DIH International has already merged with the Dutch companies Motekforce Link, a global leader in virtual rehabilitation, and FysioRoadmap MRS, a leader in web-based clinical programs and data integration. Gery Colombo, CEO of Hocoma, and Barry Hes, CEO of Motekforce Link, will lead the newly formed global rehabilitation unit within DIH International.This important merger will make all partners stronger because we can align our complementary core competencies synergistically to bring cutting-edge research and leading robotic and sensor-based rehabilitation technologies as a total solution provider to hospitals, clinics and homes worldwide and ultimately set new standards for rehabilitation.

Frankly, we cannot hide our excitement about Hocoma joining forces with DIH International and the positive spirit that we have seen among our employees after we announced the future partnership. We are looking forward to contributing our broad knowledge and expertise to come up with more innovative solutions that will provide access to the best rehabilitation solutions for many patients around the world.

We see great synergistic collaboration opportunities among our channel partners through this merger and look forward to discuss the benefits that you will have from the new DIH-Hocoma-Motekforce Link combination. Our goal is to explore how to enhance support for our partners and customers from integrated solutions and sales, to training, education, research and services.

We would also like to thank you for the work that you have done in the past and confirm that we will seek out the best opportunities to make our future collaboration even better and more targeted to our common goal: to reinvent the world of rehabilitation with advanced technologies and improve the lives of patients around the world.

We have very exciting times ahead of us — let’s make them the best ones yet.

Welcome to the future of rehabilitation!
