Linkura was founded in 2013 and is based on long-term research at Linköping University. Today Linkura is a leading actor in behavioral change work focused on objective measurement.
Our story began in Linköping in 2008. A group of medical technology researchers developed physiological sensors with the vision of measuring and returning from the body in everyday life before the disease is a fact. The company Minovi, meaning 'My New Life', was founded.
I get activity points from shoveling snow, so I asked the neighbor if I could do his driveway too,
comments from early tests with ECG measurement in everyday life.
A couple of years later, a couple of engineering students at Linköping University decided to start online caching companies to help people improve their health and lifestyle.
Now I can see everything the client does straight away and can focus on coaching while the client asks questions,
comments from one of our first coaches.
Both businesses moved into the university's corporate incubator Lead. After joint discussions, it was obvious that we shared a vision. The tools developed for coaching online would of course be combined with Minovis's unique ECG measuring device built to be present in everyday life. Discussions on merger were intensified and our surrounding networks were activated. Individuals with skills from occupational health and well-being made entrance.
In August 2013 we joined the companies under the name Linkura. Targeting our services to companies and organizations was natural because there were no measurable tools or processes that help employees in the organization to change. Already the same winter, Linkura delivered to the first customer and the journey towards new ways of working with stress and fatigue had started really!
