About us

Looking backwards

Founded in 1425, KU Leuven has been ranked n° 1 on the Reuter's list of Europe's most innovative universities in Europe, since 2016. In 2017, KU Leuven Campus Bruges opened its doors with the aim to bridge the gap between rehabilitation sciences and mechatronics with high quality, innovative, edge-cutting research. 

CoMoveIT was founded in 2021 as the first spin-off company of KU Leuven Campus Bruges (Belgium) in a true collaborative spirit of different disciplines of academic expertise, industrial knowhow and entrepreneurship.  


Moving forward

Today, our team works daily on the mission to achieve the best possible personal mobility for people where technology till yesterday did not bring efficient and comfortable solutions.  And CoMoveIT wants to make this happen for as many people as possible, simply because it’s needed, because it’s their human right. 

Therefore CoMoveIT partners with wheelchair suppliers for sales, distribution and installation, and welcomes many therapists for actual training and guidance of the CoMoveIT Smart users.

CoMoveIT complies with relevant industry standards and regulations like MDR 2017/745 to ensure quality and safety for users and partners.
