Our Story

We are a Barcelona based deep tech company transforming healthcare professional training with immersive video games and gamified virtual simualtors. 

Games are our passion. We believe that fun is not at odds with excellence. On the contrary, game principles and mechanics can boost motivation in all areas of life.

Gamified virtual training grounded in scientifically validated models is the next generation educational paradigm.

Born as a research group of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), we have more than 20 years in the field of serious games and gamification for health and education.

We’ve teamed up with hospitals, research centers, and companies to offer you video games and gamification strategies tailored for complex medical device training, rehabilitation, screening, and many other applications.

We’ve created Virmedex to bring our knowledge and experience to the market… and still have fun!
