David Health Solutions’ Founder and CEO Arno Parviainen had the honor to present the company’s healthcare vision at an employee health conference in Vittoria, Spain. The organizer of the event was La Fundación San Prudencio – the association which takes care of occupational health for 400 companies in Vitoria, Spain. The topics such as the aging of the working population and the improvement of treatments were discussed at the conference. Among the speakers were also Spanish politicians and the chief doctor of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Vitoria. Dr. Garcia gave a speech on Mercedes’ Ergomix prevention program in which David Health’s spine exercise is a core component.
Arno Parviainen was the keynote speaker at the conference. He talked about redefining company prevention using device-based exercises based on a digital functional diagnosis. It’s encouraging to see that companies have started to realize the value of preventative exercise. The best results and the highest participation are achieved when the programs are carried out during working hours. A follow-up study showed a 78% reduction in sick days at the Mercedes-Benz factory after the prevention program with DAVID devices of just one session of 15 minutes per week in 16 weeks.
