First we understand. Then we help.
Patients’ wellbeing as benchmark
To live up to our vision and bring better outcomes to more patients, we focus on the needs of patients in everything we do. In order to define what is really needed, we actively collaborate with patient organisations, healthcare providers and business partners. Our clinical development programs mirror the real-world challenges that patients, carers and clinicians face every day. We investigate innovative and flexible treatment options that meet the individual therapeutic needs of every affected person and offer real added value to their quality of life.
Closer to every patient
We are well aware of the challenges our patients face every day. Knowing that with our therapeutic solutions we provide life-changing assistance and improve their quality of life, motivates us to continue to do our best.
Get to know their stories.
Calum is affected by cerebral palsy. He talks about how important it is to accept ourselves.
Lynne, who lives with dystonia (blepharospasms), and her partner talk about their long road to diagnosis and what treatment was able to achieve in a very short time.
What matters to us.
Our motivation arises from the experience of our patients. When we see that their medical conditions are improved by our efforts and that we can improve their quality of life, that’s what drives us further. Get to know our patients and their stories to understand our mission.
Insights into their experiences:
I am 40 years old, I had a stroke 10 years ago. Since then, the whole right side of my body is spastic. My goal is to make further progress and maintain my independence as long as possible.
Having cerebral palsy, I struggle with any activity that you would use two hands for normally. I wasn’t able to tie my shoe laces until I was about 15. But I found a way, so I now I can do it with one hand, which is really good.
If you have Parkinson’s, people stare anyway but if the saliva runs … you can’t really be among people anymore, you're marginalised.
I have dystonia. For five years, my husband, my children and my mother had to accompany me everywhere.
We work closely with different patient organisations. As such, we can better understand and serve the needs of patients and healthcare providers. It also allows us to share valuable knowledge, resources and networks with each other because we also share the same goal – to improve the situation of people living with severe diseases such as dystonia or cerebral palsy.
