The company that develops and sells OPTILOGG® was founded in Sweden 2012 from the vision of improving health of the chronically ill elderly, by making them an active part of their own care team. 

Though our roots are in Sweden and the Nordics, our ambition is to reach out globally with OPTILOGG®. Chronic diseases affect everyone everywhere and increase as the world's population grows older. The need for support is enormous and the faster we can reach out with our solution, the more we can help!

"As the lead investigator for the first randomized clinical trial of Optilogg, I remain impressed with the tool's development, which also in subsequent studies has shown the benefits of enhanced self-care and reduced need for hospitalization in heart failure. And this without increased burden on the caregiver, the patient himself is the most important resource!"

We are a tight team that develops OPTILOGG®, both within the company and through our long-standing cooperation’s with expertise in several areas, but OPTILOGG® would never have become such a successful solution without the fantastic cooperation we have had and are having with both patient associations and the care profession.

From the start in 2012, we have included users in development to ensure that the solution will work and be relevant to the specific user group.
