What we
believe in

A number of new healthcare concepts and consumer trends have been sources of inspiration for how we see the near and further future of healthcare.

The popular 4P model of health care describes the need for personal care, preventive and patient-centric. Rather than applying standard protocols, care and prevention becomes a matter of customization! 

Nowadays, people rightly make a distinction between healthcare and sick care. We have to move away from the curative only. Prevention is also the key to a long and healthy life, as well as to lower the global cost of health care!

Finally, care must be applied in an integrative way. Mind, mouth & muscle: emotions, biochemical processes and the health of our system are strongly linked

4 Principles of Healthcare


We try not to categorize patients/customers or have a “protocol” for each condition. Every person is unique and that is why it is good to look at the individual behind every complaint or condition. Personalized healthcare is the future.


Covid has taught us that not everything can be solved with a magic pill and that we better take our responsibility to work on a healthier lifestyle. People want to know how their body works and guided in its optimization.


Thanks to all the data that we can collect as a result, we will be able to work predictively on both an individual and a collective level.


To measure = to know!
By getting to know your body better, you gain certain insights that are useful to prevent certain disorders through lifestyle adjustments

“At Metrics in Balance, we are turning a healthcare concept into a viable business, to give it the best chance of reaching the consumer mass, and to help healthcare professionals integrate it into their daily practice.”

What sets us apart
and holds us together

A constant quest for new trends and technologies.

Driven by technological breakthrough, and a collective consumer belief, we believe new healthcare concepts will outgrow the traditional healthcare model.

Go-to-market as our core business

To truly turn a concept into a viable business, a key skill is the ability to rapidly generate a constant stream of paying customers for it. This, we have turned into our core capability, and believe it is it the largest added value for our ventures to day.

B2C, and B2B2C

We are big believers in B2C models, but believe that professional prescribers can be the accelerator for treatments, have a higher lifetime value, and keep operations light within the venture.
