This acquisition allows Demant to expand its offer in functional rehabilitation and vertigo. With Demant’s entry into the company’s capital as a majority shareholder, Virtualis will be able to draw on the international scope of one of the world’s leading hearing aid companies to extend its geographical reach, establish its reputation and pursue its development.
Virtualis, the French medtech company, and world leader in virtual reality applications for healthcare, has chosen the Danish group Demant – the world leader in hearing aids listed on the Nasdaq in Copenhagen – to accompany it in its entrepreneurial adventure. This acquisition of a stake in Demant’s capital will enable Virtualis to be backed by a heavyweight in the sector. Demant will accelerate its international deployment by leveraging its global distribution network, its industrial capacity, and its worldwide technical support and installation teams.
