Our mission is to eradicate chronic pain by empowering people with science.

The Story of Aivo

Aivo started with the personal quest of our founder Mika – a serial tech entrepreneur who suffered from chronic pain – to understand the science of pain and find a cure.

During his research, Mika discovered that Professor Vania Apkarian has led every major advance in brain imaging of chronic pain. Professor Apkarian was the first person to discover that chronic pain can actually change the structure of the brain.

Aivo combines Vania’s scientific knowledge with Mika’s technology expertise. Aivo is a new breed of company designed to bring relief to the tens of millions of chronic pain sufferers.

Aivo means brain in Finnish. The brain is our treatment target. Aivo begins with AI to signify how we leverage real-world data and novel machine learning to discover individual treatment paths.
