Gymna: a success story of passion, expertise and innovation
Gymna’s origins are rooted in passion. Louis Claesen, a Belgian physiotherapist and gym teacher in the 1960s, was passionate about gymnastics and wanted to share this enthusiasm with others. In his free time, he developed wooden gymnastics equipment together with his father. They sawed, planed and filed their creations, and it wasn't long before their equipment attracted attention and demand skyrocketed.
Louis and his father realised they had something special on their hands, and decided to open their own carpentry workshop. It was a risky move, but they had their hearts set on translating their passion into a viable business. Louis wanted to do more than make wooden equipment, so, determined to push the boundaries, he started experimenting with metalworking. This resulted in the first Gymna treatment tables. They were a roaring success, and before long showrooms opened in Belgium. This was closely followed by the export of Gymna products, marking the beginning of an international success story. Gymna grew into a strong global brand that was ready to take the next step in the late 1990s.
To enhance its expertise, the company made the strategic decision in 1997 to collaborate with Uniphy (Unique Philosophy), a Dutch specialist in high-quality electrotherapy equipment. During that period, when Uniphy was already producing remarkable high-end devices embedded with cutting-edge technology, a powerful synergy emerged as the R&D departments of Uniphy and Gymna worked closely together behind the scenes. Despite the geographical distance of 100 kilometres separating them, the strengths of both companies were effectively combined. Uniphy's hallmark was creative thinking, while Gymna excelled in embracing and executing ideas. This dynamic collaboration resulted in a perfect synergy, enabling Gymna to swiftly add two high-end products to its product portfolio: the Uniphy Guidance series and the Gymna 500 series.
Nowadays, Gymna has a varied product range, which is marketed worldwide, and we’re still in search of continuous improvement and innovation. This enables us to support and inspire the day-to-day work of professional therapists to the utmost, so they can concentrate on giving their patients the very best care.
In the past 25 years, Gymna’s products have evolved considerably. We’re constantly in contact with physiotherapists, and further developing our products according to their dynamic needs and trends in treatment. The new gymna.PRO treatment tables represent our rethinking of the traditional treatment table. Besides the clean, modern designs, the gymna.PRO range also features a number of intelligent and ground-breaking solutions that make daily practice easier and improve the overall experience for patients.
Gymna has succeeded in offering solutions to problems that everyone has accepted as inevitable until now. Our goal is to find a solution for every professional, so that the physical therapist can concentrate on the essential: patient treatment.
And so Gymna's success story continues, as always driven by passion, expertise, and the will to innovate.
