About Us

We are an international team consisting of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs developing tools to sustain the quality of life of millions of people

Our History

Algoa is an international startup, established by renowned osteoarthritis researchers. We aim to revolutionize the way how musculoskeletal diseases are being treated by developing a health prediction platform for personalized treatments.

The innovation is based on the basic research by the Biophysics of Bone and Cartilage research group at the University of Eastern Finland, which has led to the development the most accurate biomechanical models of the cartilage in the world. The first cartilage models were developed in the early 2000s. Since that, the models have been further refined and are now also suitable for clinical use.

The team includes the world's leading researchers in biomechanics and computational modelling, with over 30 years of combined experience and over 100 peer reviewed research articles in osteoarthritis research. We work closely with research institutions, renowned clinicians and NGOs in the field and have developed a vast international network consisting of experts in medical device software development, artificial intelligence and hospital data systems.

Our Mission

As the population ages, the prevalence of chronic diseases such as musculoskeletal conditions increases, straining the already limited healthcare resources. Without knowing the personal health risks, diseases often develop undetected, and the treatments are often started at a late stage.

We provide the means for healthcare professionals to provide outcome-based healthcare services where the patient is in the center. We believe the emphasis should be on preventive measures. We bring objective health information available to everyone to sustain the quality of life of millions of people, and generate substantial societal costs savings.
