Who we are

GettingBetter Oy’s owners are Sivert Westergård, Chairman of the Board, Professor Kaija Puura and Arja Ranta-aho, Managing director. They have met during a joint Sensory Room project. The funds raised were donated to equip the Tays Children’s Hospital’s Sensory Room for equipment and research. The work during the project showed that the combination of multidisciplinary expertise is excellent for starting a new business. Jukka-Pekka Pirhonen, who specializes in health technologies and medical devices, was invited to join the team.
