February 04th, 2021: Online physiotherapy & pain relief startup YourPhysio has raised a $350K pre-seed round of funding led by Better Capital. The round also saw participation from Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl & Rohit Bansal’s Titan Capital and BITS Pilani angel investors Sarath Sura, Venu Palaparthi & VP Rajesh.
With the vision to bring pain relief to millions of people, digital physiotherapy was started in March 2020 by BITS Pilani alum Ashutosh Mundhada and Dr. Sheetal Mundhada who brings 30+ years of experience in physiotherapy. The company saw instant uptake of its online physiotherapy service as it spread to 100+ cities in a matter of months.
The company plans to use this round of funding to bolster its engineering and customer experience teams with stellar talent as it brings an on-demand live one-on-one treatment delivered by certified physiotherapists via video.
“Back & joint pain is a large and growing problem around the world. With YourPhysio, we are solving for access to high quality physiotherapy care. Our online service is as effective as offline care as it is based on first principles. Also it is really easy to adhere - with zero travel & wait time, patients can conveniently fit online treatment in their daily schedule.” said Ashutosh Mundhada, co-founder & CEO at YourPhysio.
The company went on to see enquiries from 100+ cities in the next few months and is on track to scale to become the largest online physiotherapy service provider in India. YourPhysio is also creating an opportunity for physiotherapists who can enroll with YourPhysio and offer online physical therapy sessions and create a consistent revenue stream for themselves. YourPhysio aims to onboard 1000s of physiotherapists over the next 12-18 months.
