Plantiga, a Vancouver BC-based provider of an individual movement health monitoring platform for athletes and teams, raised $1.2M in funding.
The round was led by Harlo Equity Partners with participation from Globalive Capital Partners, Rian Gauvreau, as well as a large group of professional athlete investors from the Athlete Tech Group ecosystem that includes Thaddeus Young, Patrick Patterson and Will Fuller.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate marketing and sales efforts while supporting the build-out of the self-monitoring capabilities.
Led by Quin Sandler, Founder and CEO, Plantiga allows individuals and organizations to measure, analyze and optimize movement health via a platform that combines sensor insoles, artificial intelligence and human coaching. Today, the platform powers over 60 elite organizations throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania, as well as a roster of individual athletes. Customers include teams in the NBA, NFL, MLB, MLS, and NHL, high-end sport medicine and sport physiotherapy clinics, and both the US and Canadian militaries.
The company has just launched a closed beta program for individuals. Program members get the Plantiga insoles and software platform and their own movement coach who provides data analysis and personalized recommendations.
