Benjamin Franklin

Our Story

We are a Barcelona based start-up company developing gamified software for specialized training. 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 have partnered with hospitals, research centers, institutions and companies. We have designed gamification strategies and serious games for rehabilitation, screening, professional training and other applications. We have created Virmedex to bring our knowledge and experience to the market… and still have fun!
