MOOVENCY, created in 2018, is a startup specialized in the quantification of musculoskeletal disorders in an industrial environment. Based in Rennes, we operate in france while being sensitive to specificities of each industrial area.
Where do we come from?
Moovency was created following a collaboration between Faurecia, the M2S laboratory (movement sport santé) of the University of Rennes 2 and Pierre Plantard, in thesis. The M2S laboratory has been oriented towards ergonomics for 10 years now, thanks to its expertise in the analysis and measurement of human movement. The partnership with Faurecia was built around a strong laboratory topic: the development of an innovative and ambulatory movement measurement system.
This partnership began in 2012 with a research internship at Faurecia in Crévin (35) ti validate the project’s feasibility. Following this, a CIFRE thesis was initiated between the M2S laboratory of the University of Rennes 2 and Faurecia on the development of a tool to help assess the risk of musculoskeletal disorders on workers performing shift work. This thesis, supported in 2016, led to the development of the KIMEA computer system.
The results obtained and the application perspectives of those research have enabled the several stakeholders to go further in the development of the solution. The needs were the transition from a functional prototype to an industrialised product with a commercialization objective. This objective was supported by the SATT Ouest valuation, which resulted in the implementation of a 15-month maturation programme. At the end of the maturation program (November 2018), Moovency was created in order to start selling the first version of KIMEA.
Through our backgrounds, we are committed to the culture of the field and operations. Our approach aims to support our client throughout their project in terms of risk prevention, with a tailor-made solutions to adapt to specific industrial environment.
Our main objective is to actively contribute to the reduction of musculoskeletal disorders in companies in order to make prevention a performance lever, whatever the sector of activity, the need. MOOVENCY’s DNA lies in expertise, sharing and field analysis.
From this process comes a second objective: to provide you with reliable, scientifically proven measurements, while maintaining a simplicity of use that we believe is essential for optimal efficiency.
MOOVENCY’s spine resides in expertise, sharing and field analysis.
