Mobi Health News: Digital musculoskeletal care is booming. Where does the market go from here?

Musculoskeletal care is a big problem for the U.S. healthcare system, digital health companies say. Disorders are common and expensive to treat, but care that could cut down those high costs is inaccessible to many who need it.

That message is resonating with investors. Over the past year, they’ve poured hundreds of millions of dollars into the digital MSK space. Unicorns Hinge Health and SWORD health both closed multiple rounds of funding in 2021, some worth nine figures

But they weren’t the only companies competing for venture dollars: Kaia HealthRecoveryOne and SpineZone also raked in millions of dollars in deals last year. Meanwhile, DarioHealth, which also offers tools for managing chronic conditions like hypertension and diabetes, bought its way into the space by acquiring Upright Technologies. It announced the launch of its MSK platform, called Dario Move, in October.
