Musculoskeletal (MSK) issues are unfortunately more commonplace than most people realize. In the US alone, one in two people suffer from musculoskeletal problems such as joint pain, knee injuries, sprains, and strains. While MSK frequently affects patients, soldiers, and athletes of all levels, it is preventable and reversible when assessed and treated correctly. Unfortunately, existing assessment and treatment tools utilized by physiotherapists and trainers are both expensive and subjective.
Physimax uses artificial intelligence to objectively monitor musculoskeletal conditions to minimize pain and injury rates, improve recovery, and optimize performance. The company’s platform uses motion capture technology to provide in real time an objective measurement of the subject's MSK condition and a personalized training and treatment program for injuries. Physimax has gained traction with elite organizations (NBA teams, MLB team, D1 colleges, US Military units, top healthcare providers, and academies) and validated by top U.S. academic institutes with demonstrated impact in reducing injury risk and expenses.
Data collected by the service remains the exclusive property of the customer, while Physimax is granted a non-revocable, royalty-free license to use the data, in accordance with any applicable privacy laws and regulations, while protecting customers privacy at all times. This data supports Physimax in running customer analytics for any legitimate business purposes.
Physimax cloud service automatically measures and scores mobility, stability, strength, and movement control according to evidence-based body movement patterns by real time marker-less 2D/3D computer vision analysis (s/w base, no wearable), providing data-driven, population specific, comparable scores accompanied with actionable, personalized workout programs.
Physimax’s cloud-based platform provides a wide array of benefits categorized under the 4Ps of mobile health:
- Personalized - Self-aided assessment with an objective capture and immediate score of the subject unique musculoskeletal condition
- Predictive – Artificial intelligence-powered musculoskeletal insights delivered immediately, identifying flags & injury risk factors, uncovering performance insufficiencies
- Preventive - Actionable workout program providing exercises at multiple levels and phases to improve performance and reduce injury risk, which can be performed anytime/anywhere according to the user’s preference
- Participatory - Patients can provide real time feedback on the exercise program in an engaging way, helping the expert tailor the program on an on-going basis
Physimax's story began when its co-founders Ram & David who have known each other for over 15 years, decided to combine their expertise for a joint project. Ram Shalev, Physimax CEO, former head of ambulatory rehabilitation services at one of Israel’s largest medical hospitals (Sheba Medical Center), identified the need to provide high quality care to individuals in a self-empowering way while leveraging revolutionary 3D image recognition. David, Physimax COO, brought 20 years of experience in developing video solutions to Tier-1 mobile providers. Combining the expertise of Ram and David, the idea of providing video assessments to optimize rehabilitation at home was born.
Ram & David assembled a team of R&D and technology experts (ex-IDF’s 8200 elite technology unit) along with a team of PhDs in biokinetics and physiotherapy, and developed the Physimax objective assessment solution which was validated by top US academies and deployed at elite professional sports teams (NBA, NFL, MLB), Division I colleges, and the US military.

Frequently Asked Questions
When you complete your investment on SeedInvest, your money will be transferred to an escrow account where an independent escrow agent will watch over your investment until it is accepted by Physimax. Once Physimax accepts your investment, and certain regulatory procedures are completed, your money will be transferred from the escrow account to Physimax in exchange for your securities. At that point, you will be a proud owner in Physimax.
Preferred equity is usually issued to outside investors and carries rights and conditions that are different from that of common stock. For example, preferred equity may include rights that prevent or minimize the effects of dilution or grants special privileges in situations when the company is sold.
A convertible note is a unique form of debt that converts into equity, usually in conjunction with a future financing round. The investor effectively loans money to a startup with the expectation that they will receive equity in the company in the future at a discounted price per share when the company raises its next round of financing.
To learn more about startup investment types check out “How to Choose a Startup Investment” in our academy.

Currently there is no market or liquidity for these securities. Right now Physimax does not plan to list these securities on a national exchange or another secondary market. At some point Physimax may choose to do so, but until then you should plan to hold your investment for a significant period of time before a “liquidation event” occurs. A “liquidation event” is when Physimax either lists their securities on an exchange, is acquired, or goes bankrupt.
