Vivira. Simply move. 

The first app on prescription for back, knee and hip pain. 


As a modern health tech company, we develop digital health applications (DiGA) in the field of musculoskeletal disorders. Our stated business goal is to help people with musculoskeletal disorders to reduce pain and restore function through digital therapy programs.


One of the first digital health apps

Back, knee and hip pain are the most common medical conditions among the German population. The German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) has listed Vivira as one of the first digital health apps (DiGA) - also called “App on Prescription”. This is the first time that a therapeutic training app with the aim of reducing pain has been included in the statutory health insurance system. For patients with statutory health insurance and a corresponding diagnosis or prescription, the health insurance company covers the costs for Vivira. This provides access to therapeutic training where people previously had no access.


How the Vivira app works

Vivira is based on movement therapy according to functional training principles. The core of the Vivira App is the system of daily adjustment and individual increase of the therapeutic training. These are based on the patients' feedback on the daily exercises. You can find out more about our product on our website:


We need simple solutions that are accessible, effective and safe in a complex world and people who want to implement them. Join a highly motivated team dedicated to reducing pain and improving the quality of life for as many people as possible.
