Can you imagine that it’s already the third Christmas we are celebrating as team Triumf? This has surely been an eventful year for us thus far. Here we would like to send the warmest seasonal greetings to our supporters and write about our achievements this year. Thank you, team members and everyone else, who are playing a role in this journey!

Our blog has been rather quiet during the summer because our focus has fully been on patients and game development. As you might know, we are currently in the middle of clinical trials to scientifically evaluate the effect of Triumf mobile health game on mental wellbeing and health related quality of life.
