German-based Lindera protects €6M in Series A investment

Berlin-based Lindera will utilize the €6 million financing to assist safe and secure global development and broaden its usage of expert system in the health care sector. 


Studies reveal that the Lindera SturzApp sustainably lowers the threat of falls by as much as 20% in older populations and develops time and resource for care-giving personnel.

The app is presently in usage in more than 350 care centers and treatment centres throughout Germany.


Diana Heinrichs, Founder and CEO of Lindera, described how the innovation works to MobiHealthNews. “We create gait specifications, which are precise to the millimetre, by means of the basic, monocular electronic camera discovered on every smart device or tablet and verify them clinically at the greatest level.

“Initially, we started with our mobility analysis in elderly care and developed our health application from practical experience. Care-givers use their smartphone and the Lindera app to record a 30 to 40-second video of a person’s gait and answer a psychosocial questionnaire with the patient. Based on this input, the AI technology determines the person’s precise risk of falling. On average, the analysis takes around ten minutes.”

Data from the app’s existing usage in German care centers reveals a motivating effect. “In collaboration with the Charité University Medical Center in Berlin and the AOK Baden-Württemberg we tested our SturzApp over 22 months in 16 inpatient care facilities and have just published the results,” states Heinrichs.

“The app lowered the threat of falls by practically 20%, enhanced gait speed, and significantly lowered the senior citizens’ worry of falling. Among them were 43% dementia clients and 76% who utilize assistive gadgets, such as walkers with wheels. Even the inspiration of the elderly people has actually increased: 92% of them have actually begun preparing to enhance their health in these existing structures.”

In regards to what’s next for Lindera, she states the business “is presently dealing with applications for centers and therapists. Lindera apps will quickly remain in usage in physiotherapy and physical rehabilitation, in addition to in orthopaedics and neurology, particularly in the locations of back treatment and whatever surrounding the musculoskeletal system.

“This is due to the fact that our 3D AI motion analyses can be utilized flexibly. We wish to support experts, clients, and personal users throughout a wide array of life stages and scenarios to promote movement as successfully as possible, have a good time with motion, and reach their capacity,” Heinrichs concludes.
