Finnish giant tablet opened a door to the U.S. care market


Helsinki, Finland (June 3rd, 9AM EET) The Finnish startup Kuori was invited to present its giant Android-tablet to the decision-makers of the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services this spring, and the reception was enthusiastic. The Department placed immediately an order for the devices for therapeutic and educational use.

In its home country, the Yetitablet, as big as a flat-screen TV, has been rehabilitating and activating a vast number of clients both in day services for disabled adults and nursing homes for the elderly. The number of existing Android-apps is enormous, which makes the device extremely versatile. The gigantic size of Yetitablet reduces motoric challenges when using the device, and best of all, this digital device makes people interact and work together.

“The Yetitablet is an example of Assistive Technology of the highest quality,” says enthusiastic Amy M. Blazawski, Director of Self Determination. ”It is suitable for a wide range of applications such as visual training of daily activities or training of employees. As we move ahead with our 5-year departmental goals and objectives, I look forward to developing a relationship with the Yetitablet to provide alternative therapeutic and educational options of support for the people we assist.”

“It is truly amazing to start a cooperation and to be involved in bringing new solutions to so many challenges. This relationship opens a huge opportunity to expand our activities also to other states, whose representatives we also met during our presentations. Our objective is naturally to conquer the whole North American care market. We are proud of our product, which is bringing joy to people in more and more countries.” says the CEO and the other founder of the company, Maria Jokelainen.

Kuori was founded in 2015, and during the past 6 months, its giant Android-tablet has already entered 12 countries. The company is currently active with first-round financing in order to support international growth. Last year, the company reported a turnover of more than 1.2 million euros. This year the company aims at net sales worth more than 5 million driven by new customers and international business.
