Camanio AB is a care tech company that develops innovative solutions for a good care at home
with the individual in focus. Camanio AB offers digital service platforms for digital care, robotics, assistive devices and gamification, with products such as Camanio Smart Care, BikeAround™, Bestic® and Giraff™.
Camanio AB today has its headquarters in Stockholm as well as distributors in Asia, the Middle East, Hong Kong, Australia and in several European countries.
Camanio AB was created in 2019, when Camanio Care AB sold its operations to Brighter AB. The foundation of the company began in 2016, when Camanio AB was created by merging Brighter Two and Bestic AB.
The two companies already had two strong products on the market:
the experience bike jDome®BikeAround™ and the assistive eating device Bestic®.
Together, they saw that they could operate on a larger market and reach more people in need
of products that simplify and improve everyday life.
In April 2017, the company acquired former Giraff Technologies with the telepresence robot Giraff™,
and in July 2018 another acquisition was made of the IoT specialist Vital Integration.
The story behind BikeAround jDome
From the gaming world to becoming an assistive device in health care – how did that happen? jDomes creator, John Nilsson, an entrepreneur and devoted gamer chased an even greater gaming experience. He wondered: What would happen if you had a screen that increased the visual experience of the game - a panorama view? Wouldn’t that be more realistic and fun? Said and done, John started to develop the screen that he wanted to use himself. He set it up as a projector screen in front of the home movie projector and stood up whilst playing. It struck him that it could be a clever approach to being inactive, but he could not imagine that jDome's current target group would be the ones that caused the product to take effect.
The story behind Bestic
Sten Hemmingsson: "When I was 15 years old I got polio, which brought quite severe damage to my arms and shoulders. Nevertheless, it has worked well throughout my career in the engineering industry. I have worked as a project manager, worked as CEO and have been used to caring for myself.
Approximately seven years ago I realized the difficulty it became to eat. Having to be fed affected my independence and self-esteem too much. Because I was not alone in this problem I sought out for a good assistive aid but didn’t find anything that suited my needs."
