Scientific Network

We consider a scientific approach and data privacy to be the two main pillars of our company operations. 
The acquisition and evaluation of burnout-relevant parameters on a smartphone are performed in accordance with the latest scientific criteria and based on standardised tests and evaluation. 

The cooperation of the renowned burnout and stress researcher Prof. Dr. Roland von Känel, head physician of the Department of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine at the University Hospital Zurich, full professor for Counseling/Liaison Psychiatry and Psychosomatics at the Medical Faculty of the University of Zurich guarantees the highest scientific quality and medical ethics.

Research is not conducted under laboratory conditions but in an everyday environment.
For this reason we pursue an evidence-based approach entailing continuous small adaptations (LEAN approach), aligned to the specific needs of the users.

The actual scientific innovation is what we call the BURNOUT Risk Index (BRIX), a scientific measure to describe individual burnout risk, which was developed initially by the research team headed by Prof. Dr. Roland von Känel and is the subject of ongoing further development. 
With respect both to research and to clinical therapy, the strategic collaboration with Barmelweid Clinic results in valuable synergies of a highly scientific nature and a high quality of treatment.
