Vilje not only has the will, but also the ability to change and innovate orthopedic aids. They are really skilled, and possess knowledge and expertise that will take a long time to find. I am honoured, proud and happy that will wants to include us. And I am pleased that our expertise in 3D helps them in the development of their robot-controlled orthosis

Bjarne Lindebø. General manager, Blatchford department Arendal.


The district of Sagene wants to contribute to the development and improvement of welfare technology and aids that lead to mastery and the possibility of a better everyday life for our residents. That is why Bydel Sagene is participating in this development project with Vilje Bionics, which we believe has a realistic opportunity to develop new technology that works.


-Inger-Lise Myklebust. Assistant district director, Sagene District

Byrådet for næring og eierskap

The project collaboration between Sagene Borough, Grünerløkka Borough and Vilje Bionics is very exciting for the municipality. Vilje Bionics is developing an aid that will improve the quality of life for many people with functional impairments. Innovation in our health service is an important area of focus for the city council, and through SmartOslo we are increasing cooperation between the municipal health service and start-up and growth companies. This form of development cooperation between districts and businesses contributes both to new and better health services, good business development and new jobs.
