Rhythm is at the heart of all our projects. Neuroscience has improved our understanding of the perception and motor production of rhythms, as well as their influence on our brain. As brain structures that allow us perceive rhythms are also those that enable us to move, a therapeutic opportunity opens up. The use of adapted rhythms can indeed counteract the deleterious effects of certain pathologies as well as those of aging which alter our motor skills. beatHealth develops innovative technologies that restore motor skills by training rhythmic abilities.

Our storyAn extraordinary adventure

beatHealth is the result of a multitude of encounters bringing together scientists and entrepreneurs passionate about the world of rhythms.

A history of collaborations

It is in 2010 that the paths of the future founders of beatHealth crossed for the first time.

Dr. Simone Dalla Bella's team, which had been working on the first tests for synchronization and rhythm perception, aimed at integrating these tests into a unique tool, and developed the BAASTA (Battery for the Assessment of Auditory Sensorimotor and Timing Abilities). He then met NaturalPad (incubated in the EuroMov research center) and together they obtained an ERDF grant for the development of the BAASTA on a touch tablet.

Following these developments, NaturalPad continued the work on rhythm with Simone and together they released a first version of RhythmWorkers, a rhythm game for improving rhythmic abilities.

First steps of beatMove

beatMove, one of our digital solutions, originates from the Beat-Health European project. Funded by the European Union (€2.9 millions), this research project united 5 partners across Europe (University of Montpellier, Montpellier Academic Hospital, University of Ghent, University of Maynooth, Tecnalia Foundation) with the aim to exploit the close link between music and movement, in order to boost sports performance and improve health and wellness of users.

The benefits of a music adapted to the gait of patients suffering from Parkinson's disease was demonstrated and led to the development of a musical walking assistance application, beatMove.

beatHealth's birth

At the end of the European project, Valérie Cochen de Cock, Benoît Bardy, Simone Dalla Bella and Loïc Damm sought to make the digital solution accessible to users and healthcare professionals.

The collaboration with NaturalPad became obivous: beatHealth was founded in August 2021 and quickly offers an ecosystem of products that combines rhythm and health.
