Cork-based digital health startup Gabadoo announced as finalist in the 2021 Technology Ireland Awards

Gabadoo Logo V7 TM Transparent BG-05.Great news for Gabadoo, an Irish startup that aims to cut waiting times down to hours for families who are looking for support from Allied Health Professionals including Paediatric Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists, as it has just been nominated for the 2021 Technology Ireland Awards in the Tech4Good Category. 

Gabadoo aims to significantly reduce waiting times for services, allowing families who need more intensive face to face support to get it much quicker, while empowering other families with individualized strategies, resources and product recommendations from a developmental expert, so they can confidently support  their child at home. 

It enables families to easily and securely upload videos, images and notes highlighting their question or concern, and then matches them with developmental experts who have experience in that area. After the info provided is reviewed, the Gabadoo Expert sends the family a Gaba  Plan outlining individualised strategies, relevant organisations and product recommendations. 

All_Devices_Gabadoo_Transparent_BG_-_Thaerpaists_2048x2048Co-Founder and Chief Clinical Officer, Jessica Kennedy, who is a Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist, explains: “The need for support is growing and Covid-19 has made things  much worse. The earlier families can access support the better the outcome will be, and in many instances all parents need is some guidance and strategies on how to support their  child. 

Co-Founder and CEO, Seán Ó Tuama adds: “By leveraging technology we have been able to create a new way of working for Allied Health Professionals that is flexible, fully remote and  much more efficient, making it possible to support a lot more families. Gabadoo will have a  major social impact globally by making expert support available in countries where it typically  is not available, and at this early stage, it is amazing to even be shortlisted for the Technology  Ireland Tech4Good Award.” 

Gabadoo has built an extensive team of highly experienced therapists which has not only helped to create an amazing community, but has also enabled it to become Europe’s largest source of Paediatric Allied Health Support in a matter of months. 

A pretty impressive feat! We reckon the Technology Ireland Awards is only the beginning!
