“We decided to work with Hinge Health, since we were impressed with their rigorous clinical approach, and the demonstrated impact on quality of life and medical utilization. Even just a year into our collaboration, we’re projecting dozens of avoided surgeries. The team have been fantastic to work with, going above and beyond in making sure the rollout to our 10,000+ dispersed employees requires minimal effort from our end, and provides a fantastic user experience to our employees. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hinge Health to any employer struggling with MSK in their workforce.”

"Castlight has teamed with Hinge Health as one of our preferred partners for a number of reasons. While MSK is a huge issue for virtually all of our clients, very few solutions exist in the market. As the leader in the digital MSK care space, Hinge Health is the only solution that is set up to deliver all facets of evidence-based care for these conditions. Combined with the impressive clinical results they've demonstrated, this means we have been seeing significant interest in their solution amongst particularly our largest, most sophisticated enterprise clients. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership!"

"We've built a comprehensive internal benefits & wellness offering, which has kept our health plan at negative trend for half a decade. However, MSK has always been one area that's been hard to control. With Hinge Health, engagement and outcomes have been exceeding expectations. There is a significant Value on Investment that we are hearing from employees, stories about how they are now able to play with their grandchildren without pain, reductions in depression and anxiety and a new-found ability to enjoy regular exercise. We all know there is an influx of digital vendors/platforms in the health and wellness space right now and not all deliver what they promise. But I will stand by Hinge Health and I feel strongly that they are a cut above the rest."
