History of DAVID
DAVID was established in 1981 by Arno Parviainen. The early years involved intensive loading principle development and other biomechanical features. Collaboration was close with Professor Paavo Komi from the University of Jyväskylä. Science papers published several articles validating the variable loading principle integrated into all devices. In the mid-80s, DAVID’s focus started to shift to device-based exercise in rehabilitation. The first product in this area was for knee rehabilitation using sophisticated training and testing technology, including EMG. In the early 90s, DAID introduced a revolutionary patented hip lock mechanism which allowed therapeutic exercises to be used for even the most severe back patients. The foundation of the David Spine Concept today is the comprehensive treatment program built around the technology. In 1999 Arno sold the company, but in 2008, an opportunity emerged to buy back the business, which Arno did with his son, Lauri, a medical doctor who had an IT company with projects in cloud computing. A series of development projects were initiated, and during the past 14 years, a cloud-based IT platform was introduced in 2010. All products were redesigned, including a completely new shoulder system. Today, DAVID has the world’s most advanced therapeutic exercise platform, but development continues in exciting new areas.
