Shaping the Health Care of Tomorrow Today

From idea to company


AmbiGate GmbH is a software company in the beautiful city of Tübingen and a spin-off of the university.
During their studies, the three founders already realized that back problems are an pressing issue in our society. For this reason they were looking for a solution for sustainable health care.


The concept was born:

Motion detection through 3D sensors and health exercises. AmbiGate!

Health for everyone


The concept was ready, exercises were recorded with physiotherapists, algorithms were developed and programmed. In combination with the sensors a possibility was found to give qualitative feedback.

Thus a software was created. The AmbiCoach!

Since back pain is mainly caused by factors during work (e.g. wrong sitting, wrong posture, lack of movement, stress), we provided the AmbiCoach for companies in the context of workplace health promotion. But that was not enough for us!

Initially for the PC and using a 3D camera, the AmbiCoach will soon be available as an app for smartphone and tablet. And thus for YOU!
