As the 13th edition of Business Review Awards Gala, BR magazine’s flagship event that recognizes the outstanding achievements of the business community, will take place on March 5, we want to put the spotlight on the 11 categories from which the independent jury will select the winners for their exceptional performance in 2017.

Learn how you can get in the competition

Last year, Business Review launched the Best Start-up category, in which Re.Flex was declared the first winner. The start-up founded by Camil Moldoveanu enables the physiotherapy patients to finish recovery at home, increasing the clinic’s profit and revenue by using a wearable solution.

“We gathered very bright engineers and we know, based on the time that we spent until now we can make a dent in the physiotherapy industry. Our users are very happy,” Moldoveanu said during last year’s Gala.

The product developed by Re.Flex provides a visualization of movement based on links between sensors.

Last year, Re.Flex was selected as among 100 highly-promising startups at Health.Pioneers | Amsterdam, which is the ultimate meeting point for innovators from the digital healthcare ecosystem.

The startup is looking to work with insurance firms, clinics, physiotherapist and researchers to develop the solution. Re.Flex has its main offices in Bucharest and an international office in Vienna.
