But what exactly does Team Medical do at 8sense?
Long texts, without paragraphs and in difficult medical language? We love it. We don’t just enjoy scouring through medical studies to extract the best insights for the development of 8sense, though. We, the Team Medical of 8sense, are also looking for the best exercises. We then integrate them into our app together with our developer team. We also ensure that all parts of 8sense have an evidence-based medical background (find more about this here).
When Andrea is not sweating the team with the latest exercises in 8sense Sport, she advises the product development team as to which stretching is effective and what makes a good posture.
Lutz sprints from one important conference to the next and participates in numerous research programmes in the USA, Canada and Germany. By the way, he is also a team doctor for the German Ice Hockey Federation and our constant and expert advisor when it comes to medical questions.
Theresia is also on board as a physiotherapist. The project closest to her heart is the 8sense magazine: supposedly complicated medical knowledge is summarised concisely and lovingly illustrated for you in a simple, clear and humorous way (since science can be fun too).
In addition to our love of medicine, we are also united in our love of movement: whether it’s turning things on their head during yoga, winning the “push-up challenge” in functional training or enjoying the surrounding mountains when skiing. We want to set things in motion. Perhaps you, too?
