WHO ARE WE?
Yes, we are a tech-startup recognized by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India. We are focused on the development of innovative products in the field of biomechanics. Our products are customized in design to deliver an effective solution.
Fovera is led by a team of IIT Madras Alumni and mentored by medical experts. At Fovera, our first project is to design products related to healthy posture. As the bad posture is the root cause of most of the body pains, we have looked on non-drug pain management through medical pillows. Currently, we have ergonomically designed lumbar support cushion, coccyx cushion, neck pillow, cervical pillow, knee pillow, acid reflux pillow, pregnancy pillow, and leg elevation pillow. Our ambitious project is to design customized insole/footwear for people with diabetes and foot-pain. The end result will be comfortable, pain-free and secured gait.
