Switzerland-based robotic and sensor-based rehabilitation solutions manufacturer Hocoma AG announces it has merged with DIH International, a corporate holding group from Hong Kong that focuses on rehabilitation solutions and medication management.

“For Hocoma, this is the next big step into the future,” says Dr Gery Colombo, CEO of Hocoma, in a media release. “Together we are stronger, because we can align synergistically our complementary core competencies to set new and better standards for advanced rehabilitation solutions worldwide.”

“Due to an aging society, the rehabilitation market is one of the biggest growth markets in the health industry. Now, we can offer clinicians the best solutions for their patients – as a holistic, full service provider of the entire rehabilitation continuum,” adds Columbo.

“We are thrilled about this merger, which not only enables us to establish a global premiership in providing total solutions to customers with cutting edge technologies in robotics, VR, sensing and automation, it also lays out a strategic foundation for DIH to accelerate its mission of global integration and ecosystem building, and speed up its IPO strategy,” states Jason Chen, CEO of DIH International, in the release.

Hocoma’s North American offices are located in Norwell, Mass.
