" We thrive to be a holistic and effective tool for stroke recovery available to everyone. "

— Co-founders Kristaps Krafte and Jānis Šlēziņš

Our Story

Vigo’s founder Kristaps Krafte, while studying Innovation in Health Care in Copenhagen and Rotterdam, turned to evaluating the effectiveness of stroke treatment and was surprised by how inefficiently it was organized.

Vigo’s co-founder Janis Slezins, while working as a neurosurgeon in UK, Portugal and Latvia, witnessed the same problems everywhere – the significant lack of human resources and rehabilitation facilities made patients with stroke and severe head injury unable to receive much-needed rehabilitation in sufficient amounts at the right time.

It was clear to both that the capacity of human resources and rehabilitation facilities would never be sufficient to ensure full rehabilitation for each patient. Vigo arose when the two decided to combine efforts to make stroke rehabilitation radically accessible through digital technologies.
