About us

The Nordic Trailblazers OT Practice is an independent Occupational Therapy company specialising in providing expert clinical occupational therapy and public health services via telehealth and online sessions to private individuals, statutory services and business clients.

The terms “telerehabilitation” and “telehealth” speak best to what Nordic Trailblazers does. Both are defined as the delivery of health care services over telecommunication networks and the internet. Nordic Trailblazers was created with the mission of providing safe, state-of-the-art care that’s cost-effective and convenient to patients of any age looking to prevent, manage, or diminish health issues and advice on how to tackle loneliness.

We deliver our services in English, Danish and Icelandic

ETICS

Ethics are at the heart of our vocation as health care professionals and is an ethos we actively instil throughout all areas of the business, not just our clinical team. As a conscientious and creative thinking healthcare provider, we strive to present our clients with all their options, so they can make the choice about their care.
