The Story Behind
The PSAD concept is patent protected. The PSAD is developed by Movotec A/S in cooperation with Copenhagen University and professor Jens Bo Nielsen and the Elsass Foundation.
Who we are
The Elsass Foundation was established by Miss Helene Elsass, who herself suffered from cerebral palsy. Her wish was to help people with cerebral palsy. The Elsass Foundation is a research and scientific expertise center, and the foundation also supports people with cerebral palsy individually.
What we do
Embedded in all that we do and engage in at the Elsass Foundation is the aim to improve the lives and possibilities of people diagnosed with cerebral palsy and their families. Our work encompasses everything from carrying out scientific research, presenting new medical and psychological findings to contributing funds for institutions, associations and individuals related to cerebral palsy.
