Forcelink (Holland) is specialized in instrumented treadmills for research and rehabilitation applications.
Our newest product is the C-Mill: a patented gait evaluation and treatment system augmented with auditory and visual stimuli in a gait-dependent manner. The instrumented treadmill allows for online registration of gait parameters on a step-to-step basis, while a projector is exploited to augment the belt surface with real-virtual objects, such as stepping targets and obstacles. With these features, the C-Mill provides an engaging and functional gait rehabilitation environment. At the same time, the C-Mill objectively quantifies gait and gait-environment interactions, such as targeted stepping and obstacle avoidance.

Doctor Kinetic (Holland) is an innovative approach towards rehabilitation. The platform enables medical professionals to select and customize a training program for a particular case. The games improve compliance, by motivating players towards exercising – doing more repetitions with a better technique.
The ability to scan a person in 3D provides extraordinary reporting features.
It’s designed for professional and home environments. Doctor Kinetic is an Alumni of StartupBootcamp Amsterdam and a finalist of Accenture Innovation Awards 2012.
The system is used in multiple locations in the Netherlands where it was clinically approved. A large group of physiotherapy clinics is working with Doctor Kinetic. We are currently investigating other markets and getting ready to an international rollout early 2014.


The Virtuix Omni™  (US) is an innovative virtual reality interface that allows the user to move freely and naturally in their favorite game. The base of the Omni is a grooved, low-friction surface. Special pinned shoes keep the foot stabilized and prevent lateral sliding. Users walk naturally—and the result is a natural interface that works with any game or application that uses keyboard input. Walk, run, jump, crouch, or strafe—movements mapped to the keyboard can be mapped to natural motion with the Omni. Applications of natural movement in virtual reality stretch far beyond gaming with obvious opportunities in fitness training and physical rehabilitation.
