ReHand Launches a €300,000 Crowdfunding Round
ReHand became the first digital solution via tablet for the rehabilitation of wrist, hand, and fingers, which account for 29% of the injuries that reach hospital emergency departments. In the European Union countries, there are around 7 million injuries in this segment every year. The investment round aims of scaling the optimal results achieved in Spain to other countries.
ReHand, an Andalusian startup in the health sector, has launched an investment round to raise €300,000 that will allow it to take another leap in its growth in Europe and Latin America as a company specializing in digitizing the rehabilitation of trauma and bone, and muscle or neurological injuries. A crowdfunding model has been chosen for this round. Currently, with 37 days left to close the round, 65% of the expected capital has been covered by 77 investors.
The investment round that is underway, with minimum contributions of €500, is led by Capital Cell with the aim of scaling the optimal results achieved in Spain to other countries and go beyond the nearly 100 clinics and hospitals that they have as clients, with special emphasis on markets that regulate these digital tools such as Germany.
Founded in Seville in 2016 by Jesús Blanquero, Alejandro Suero, and José Manuel López, they began to stand out being known as Healthinn, collaborating closely with the Andalusian Public Health System. After its embryonic stage in Andalucía Open Future, they have accelerated its development thanks to reference entities such as the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT Health), having its headquarters for the last three years in the Center for Advanced Business Resources (CREA) of the City of Seville.

Engineering and clinic
Jesús Blanquero, CEO of ReHand, explains that the company “was born from clinical practice because we observed that there was a wide margin for improvement in the care processes of rehabilitation services, which could be addressed through mobile technologies. From there, we created a research team and brought together complementary profiles from the clinical and computer engineering fields. The room for improvement was so large that we had to start somewhere. We decided to focus initially on wrist, hand, and finger rehabilitation, because of its frequency, its impact on the daily activities of a large number of people, and to demonstrate that we could have an impact on reducing healthcare costs.”
ReHand became the first digital solution via tablet for the rehabilitation of wrist, hand, and fingers, which account for 29% of the injuries that reach hospital emergency departments. In the European Union countries as a whole, there are around 7 million injuries in this segment every year. Blanquero recalls that “the first funds to support our research and development were obtained through the Ministry of Health of the Andalusian Regional Government.
This made it possible to carry out a multicenter clinical trial with more than 600 patients, in which reference hospitals such as the Virgen Macarena and Virgen del Rocío Hospitals participated. The quality of the results was accredited in publications in international scientific journals.
