Volketswil, September 1, 2016 – Hocoma, the world leader of robotic and sensor-based rehabilitation solutions from Switzerland, merged with DIH International, a corporate holding group from Hong Kong with offices in China, Korea, the Netherlands and the US. Hocoma and DIH share the same vision as a full solution provider for the entire rehabilitation continuum.
A successful therapy begins in patients’ heads. In the firm belief that – step by step – they can reach their goals and regain quality of life.
This is what we work for at the Swiss medtech company Hocoma. With technologies and ideas that look at functional movement therapy from a completely different angle. Because they enable independent exercises and create maximum motivation. Because they challenge people to take courage and support their hopes with personal achievements.
We are committed to creating the ideal therapy. Our awarded robotic and sensor-based devices offer solutions for intensive gait therapy (Lokomat®), functional therapy of the upper extremities (Armeo®), robotic mobilization and functional electrical stimulation in early rehabilitation (Erigo®) as well as functional movement therapy within low back pain treatment (Valedo® Therapy Concept) at home and at the clinic. They are the result of intensive research, consistent development and continuous exchange with patients, therapists and partners in research and science.
Those who see to break new grounds need to stay open to exceptional ideas. They have the potential of being exceptionally effective. This guiding principle by Hocoma founder and CEO Dr. Gery Colombo has accompanied us since our start in 2000 and is still lived and implemented by our dedicated employees around the world. At the headquarters in Volketswil near Zurich (Switzerland) and the subsidiaries in the USA, Singapore and Slovenia they achieved a turnover of more than 30 million CHF in 2015.
Founded with a vision to Deliver Inspiration & Health by blending cutting-edge intelligent technologies with game-changing healthcare insights, DIH is building market-leading integrated solutions to revolutionize medication management and rehabilitation through active growth strategies. DIH is backed by nearly a thousand passionate employees in some of the world’s most innovative hubs from Amsterdam in Europe, to Seoul in Korea and Beijing in China.

DIH has become the global leader in the advanced rehab research market, and a regional leader in China and the Netherlands in providing total integrated solutions for neurological, orthopedic and cardiac rehabilitation hospitals and clinics.
