Looking for a founding engineer/ possible cofounder who will fall and rise with us.
About I Bedste Fald.
I Bedste Fald is quite literally “the best way to fall”. Each year elderly and vulnerable people fall causing serious injury, trauma, and sometimes death.
Worldwide the amount of falls that require medical attention is yearly equillant to more than 6 times the full population of Denmark.
Waiting for treatment is painful, traumatizing, and expensive. As people age the risk of losing self-confidence, and becoming weaker and vulnerable is compounding the risk of falling. - furthermore, a harmful fall can rapidly speed up this process, as many falls lead to a state of fear, frailty, isolation and paradoxically more falls.
I Bedste Fald am on a mission to change that.
As a medal-winning Judo athlete, Founder Mathias Krabholm already had a lot of experience of falling! Through his training and teaching others, he discovered that these techniques would not only help professional sportsmen and women but could also be applied to help vulnerable people prevent and tackle falls, grow their self-confidence and prevent, injury, psychological trauma and death.
Many people think of falls as a phenomenon that randomly occurs phenomena there’s somehow always causes harm to the body. Many falls can be prevented and the systematics of a safe fall can be trained safely and progressively, based on individual needs.
This is however NOT the usual case when dealing with fall prevention - where the focus is mainly on fall avoidance.
Mathias has so far trained 2500 people in these safe falling techniques, and a majority have reasonably reported how the workshops have helped them to make them less afraid and concerned. This way the training will not “only” help prevent falls and the potential harm of a fall, it make participants more active and confident - which can also take a lot of concerns away from the next of kin.
I Bedste Fald has been featured in Danish media - (TV2, DR, and Ekstrabladet) and has generated significant inbound sales and interest. So much so that it has become urgent to develop a digital product to scale the product and meet demand.
We are a young team looking to apply welfare technology to a range of scenarios and collaborate with large established organizations to build a cutting-edge healthcare solution.
