In detail

Happyr Health changes the game in chronic pain management for children and young people.


“Chronic pain is a complex and devastating condition. 1 in 4 children and young people are affected. Chronic pain leads to disability, loss of independence and a poor quality of life. Often, it is accompanied by anxiety and depression. That’s why Cornelius and Nicola, two chronic pain patients themselves, founded Happyr Health.”


Happyr Health provides digital support to young people with chronic pain,starting with those who suffer from migraine & recurring headaches. Together with multiple experts in pediatric neurology & psychology, we offer a digital and playful migraine management app that helps them deal with their physical and emotional wellbeing.  

The app uses storytelling and gamification to engage children and their parents in the process. It supports doctors to provide a more accurate diagnosis and allows Happyr Health to tailor digital interventions to the needs of young pain patients. Everywhere, personalized, and at the right time.
