As an employer/team lead
Answers to questions that are top of mind for employers and team leads.
Vitrue Health was founded in 2017. Our journey started with a product called EVVA, which was designed to help physiotherapists to assess their patients in clinics. This product is widely used in physio clinics, hospitals and elite sports teams in Europe, America and further afield.
Then 2020 happened. When companies were forced to close their office doors and employees started working from sofas and kitchen tables, we knew this would lead to a spike in musculoskeletal issues like back pain. We adapted our clinical technology to help remote desk workers reduce health risks in their workspace and improve their wellbeing, happiness and productivity.
Welcome to the service! We hope the recommendations VIDA provides help you have the best working experience possible!
VIDA stands for Vitrue Interactive Desk Assessment.
It’s a digital workplace assessment that reduces issues like back pain in your teams while making you DSE compliant. For remote, office and hybrid teams.

VIDA’s assessment and recommendation algorithms have been designed by our in-house team of physiotherapists, osteopaths, biomechanists and psychology and ergonomics advisors. All recommendations are based on the latest peer reviewed, scientifically validated research.
VIDA is designed to be a tool to empower people to self-correct ways of working and have a healthier and happier employee experience. However, there will be some situations and challenges which cannot be self-corrected. In these cases, VIDA is not a replacement of personalised advice from a medical professional and should not be the primary solution for anyone who is pregnant or has serious health issues. Anyone in these groups should seek further guidance on how to minimise health risks. Anyone who has received advice from a medical professional who may have a more in-depth understanding of their circumstances and needs should follow their advice first and foremost.
As an employee/end user
Answers to questions that are top of mind for employees and end users.
Our mission is to reduce musculoskeletal pain for millions of people. VIDA was designed by our team of physiotherapists and osteopaths to do exactly that. VIDA goes beyond just looking at one of your pain areas and helps to identify numerous factors that can holistically improve your health and wellbeing.
We map out points such as the tip of your nose, chin and ears and compare those dots to thousands of scans of other people. We then use our AI algorithm, created by our developers and in-house physiotherapists, to know what certain factors mean for your health and wellbeing.
We have an in-house physiotherapist, an osteopath and our CEO has a PhD in musculoskeletal computational modelling (try saying that three times fast...). Collectively they're experts at assessing the body's position, posture and movements and analyzing those in computer models which build recommendations for any risks or issues that are detected.
VIDA aims to closely monitor any musculoskeletal pain you may have and give you the tools to reduce it yourself. VIDA offers Pain Coach videos to help you manage your pain on a daily basis.
VIDA Pain Coach allows you to select your pain area and gives you the tools to manage it yourself, whether the pain is work-related or not.
Use VIDA to assess all your workspaces for personalised recommendations to improve your health in that workspace. We recommend VIDA is used at least once a quarter or every time you work from somewhere new!
Unfortunately our algorithms require your camera to be in the center at the top of your screen. However you can easily skip this section and still get all of the other sections of the assessment.
Log into VIDA and you can view your recommendations, assessment history and personalised pain reduction programme.
Webcam images and videos are processed within the browser. To put it more simply - no image or video data leaves your computer. Zero. Zilch. We're 100% GDPR, CCPA compliant.

Your company will see who needs what equipment, key health & wellbeing risk insights and who has completed assessments - things that will help them to help you. They won't see personal health data such as how often you exercise, your age, smoking habits or weight. These factors are just used to better tailor the recommendations in your personalised report.
You can read more at www.vitruehealth.com/privacy.
If you indicate you have a high pain level or other health risk and VIDA recommends seeing a GP, physiotherapist or other health professional - please do this! VIDA is designed to guide you on how to be happier and healthier, but sometimes you just can't do that alone. VIDA is not a substitute for personalised medical advice from a professional who can understand your circumstances in more detail. If a medical professional gives you advice that conflicts with VIDA you should always follow their advice.
First of all, congratulations!
We’ve recently updated our product to cater for those who are expecting. There’s the option to tell us if you’re pregnant in some of the final questions in the assessment, so please do. We’ll always keep this confidential between us and you and will not notify your employer.
You should always follow your medical professional's advice on working best practices. They know best! We hope VIDA provides some benefits but you should always consult a medical professional before making any health decisions during pregnancy.
