On a mission to understand and optimize human movement
“Our goal is to positively impact millions of people by focusing on optimizing both their movement health and performance,” said Quin Sandler, Founder and CEO of Plantiga. “We know very little of how people move, and especially in the real-world, but the way someone moves tells us so much. We can optimize our movement patterns. We can increase mobility, range of motion, speed and more. We can push the boundaries of what’s currently possible.”
Plantiga’s platform combines sensor insoles, artificial intelligence and human coaching to drive better resilience, recovery and performance, allowing individuals and organizations to measure, analyze and optimize movement health. Today, the company’s platform powers over 60 elite organizations throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, as well as a growing roster of individual athletes.
Funding for growth
The funding will accelerate marketing and sales efforts while supporting the build-out of the self-monitoring capabilities. This enables any individual to track themselves wherever and whenever, while sharing that data with whomever they choose (team, trainer, coach, doctor, etc.). This approach will power Plantiga’s B2B relationships, while laying the groundwork to go after the rapidly growing personalized health-tracking market.
The Vancouver-based company has recently launched a closed beta program for individuals. Program members get the Plantiga insoles and software platform and their own movement coach who provides data analysis and personalized recommendations.
