We aim to improve the quality of life of vulnerable people. Love to make things better, more simple and easy to use. We provide elegant software solutions with a focus on elderly care and reading impaired persons.
All our products are “user centered”: the end user has a central role throughout the entire process and “open”. The products allow to integrate information of other systems in an easy and transparent way. The user needs to fill in the necessary information only once which increases the efficiency.
Pyxima’s experience in elderly care dates back to 2004, when our team started developing the BelRAI platform for the Belgian Federal Government. BelRAI is the Belgian version of the interRAI instrument for geriatric assessment of patient care needs. InterRAI helps care teams assess a patient’s care situation. Evidence based indicators help adjust the care plan to best satisfy the patients care needs.

Reading impaired persons
Books, newspapers and magazines can be made more accessible for blind, partially sighted or dyslectic persons if they are digitally available and well-structured or if they have an audio version (a “digital talking book”).
In 2008 Pyxima launched the talking newspaper in Flanders, together with partner Kamelego, as the first daily spoken newspaper in the world.
After that Pyxima developed a unique platform for distributing audio books online in the DAISY format (an existing enhanced audio book format that enables structured navigation, bookmarks, page skipping and other accessibility features): Online Daisy.
“WITH OVER 150.000 ACTIVE USERS TODAY ONLINE DAISY IS EUROPE’S LEADING PLATFORM FOR ONLINE AND MOBILE TALKING BOOKS”.
Our customers include; care facilities (hospitals, home care organisations, general practices), governments, libraries and content providers.
While the company is still quite young, the team’s experience dates back to the late 1990’s, where at the Leuven University, they participated in many international projects about information accessibility of blind persons, electronic information exchange and usability improvements.
Supported by professors and, internationally acclaimed specialists in accessibility and usability, Pyxima was founded as a university spin-off in 2009.
Starting with four technology enthusiasts in 2009, the Pyxima team today has grown substantially which is also reflected our international business growth.
Pyxima is member of Leuven. inc, the network of high-tech, innovative entrepreneurs, companies and researchers.
