How it all began

Understanding the effects of vibrations on biological systems
Bruno Nuyttens - the founder of hhp - has always had a close connection with his father. When, more than a decade ago, he began to suffer from chronic back pain, Bruno had only one thought: to free his father from this non-operatable condition.

This was the time when Bruno came across a massage mattress at a trade fair in Germany. The mattress itself was not fully developed and quite simple, but it already contained one of the basic principles on which all subsequent hhp products should be based: mechanical vibrations. Fascinated by the supposed advantages of this simple device, Bruno dared to try this on his father to reduce his suffering. After a series of applications on the mattress, his father's condition improved noticeably. The pain gradually subsided, until finally it completely disappeared!



Make a dream come true

This unexpected result was the event that led Bruno to his new life task - he undertook to help as many people as possible in alleviating their ailments and to help them by regaining their hope of improving their quality of life.

Since that day Bruno has put all his energy into the development of products that are linked to this biophysical principle. For example, hhp has developed a range of professional devices, tools and services that enable people to alleviate their mild discomfort and chronic illness. From the beginning, our mission was not limited to the development of pain-relieving products; Instead, our ambition was more holistic: the unification of technological advantages with a complete philosophy about health, which is based on the self-care concept.

Intensive product development and scientific research

The real challenge of the first days of hhp was to convert a simple massage mattress into a fully functional, high-quality medical device. To cope with this challenge, we carried out the development phase in collaboration with scientists, faculties of higher education and physicians - on the basis of remarkable progress in the field of biophysics.

The resulting technology has been protected under the name "Andullation®" under trademark law.

The secret of the Andullation® is the combination of mechanical vibration with infrared deep heat to stimulate cell metabolism and activate relaxation mechanisms. In the course of further development further therapeutically important effects were added. The Andullation® has a particularly positive effect on the human body and can be used to relieve pain. This unique technology passed through many different phases of clinical trials. We also carried out research projects "in vitro" and "in vivo" to develop innovative treatment approaches based on Andullation®s technology. We do this with the support of the International Association for Andullation® Technology (IAAT), which initiates, coordinates and monitors these activities.

Building relationships with our professional partners

Without the close relationships and partnerships that we have established over the years with physiotherapists, general practitioners and other medical professionals, especially those in the sports sector, we would not be where we are today.

These professionals have gained confidence in our products and services they use to provide their patients with better care and a higher level of service. This is especially the case when started treatments can be conveniently carried out by our patients at home thanks to our products. This in turn facilitates the regular treatment of long-term complaints. To date, 120,000 patients have already been helped in this way.

Development of our product range

Each element in our professional range has many different stages of product development. Our product portfolio has expanded significantly in recent years. This expansion includes ANDUBALANCE®, which is a new approach to medical problems related to water storage and weight control. Likewise, the ANDUBED®, which applies the Andullation® for the first time against dysphagia, is a true revolution for all who suffer from stress and sleep problems.

The ANDUFLEX® is the latest addition to our self-care range and reflects the needs of many of our customers: a versatile and compact Andullation®s device. The ANDUFLEX® can be applied to the forearms, thighs and a variety of different leg muscles. It proved to be a great success with active people who want to stay fit.

Development of future products and services with added value

Hhp has developed many unique product concepts, which are still in development and production. One of these ideas is the hhp energy capsule. This unique ovoid module will contain all of our high quality products. The hhp energy capsule has the goal of helping to regain the necessary energy we all need for our daily activities. For a holistic experience, it will also be equipped with options such as light therapy and audio modules. These hhp energy capsules will be available in our hhp health centers and in practices of selected healthcare specialists.

In addition to our range of self-care products, we also develop an online platform for self-care, which offers health cure for pain relief, sleep, wellness as well as sporting performance and regeneration. These health treatments are tailored to the individual needs of our customers and offer them the advantages of our products comfortably in their own home. The cures are also accompanied by hhp health coaches.

Health centres

An important milestone in our history was the opening of our first hhp health centres in Antwerp (Belgium) and Istanbul (Turkey). These shops have been designed as a special environment to relax and test our complete range of products. Customers also have the opportunity to share their concerns with our professional health coaches. You can learn more about the brand, our philosophy, the Andullation®s technology as well as our many services and treatments. With the success of these two health centers, we will open new health centers in large cities around the world in the near future.

Step by step expansion of our international network

Patients in Europe with mild discomfort or chronic diseases are increasingly enthusiastic about the way our products and services help them look after their health and improve their quality of life. After a rapid phase of expansion in Western Europe, and especially in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain and the United Kingdom, further branch openings will soon follow in North and South America.

Gradually, we are expanding our international partner network with physiotherapists and other health experts. At all our sites, we regularly organize health campaigns in local centers or physiotherapeutic practices. This gives everyone the opportunity to test our products and services first hand. For hhp, this is crucial because we never stop wondering how positively some patients react to the Andullation® directly after a single application.
