It is sometimes destiny that determines success
The year 2014 was one of the most pivotal in my life. I was working as an engineer for a global company at the time. Never would I have thought that a small tick would change my entire life forever.
An unfortunate consequence of the bite was that I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Unfortunately, in spite of a long, body-burdening treatment, I experienced the symptoms of the disease again after a year. I took up the fight against the enemy, which I would carry on for the rest of my life. It was these events that made me realise how hard it is to find the right diagnosis and how important preventive health care is, ultimately leading to the creation of Helfio.
20 people currently compose the team who work every day to help people stay healthy and grow the business. Through a combination of medicine, technology, and experience, we have been able to create an app that helps people lower their risk of heart disease, take care of the prevention of metabolic disorders, and, at the same time, influence positive well-being.
We are proud to help you change your lives every day!
