Our Story

A Shared Commitment to Excellence in Healthcare Education

Founded in January 2008 by Teresa Pinto and Pedro Pinto, Take the Wind (TTW) is a leading company in technology for clinical education, with clients worldwide including major scientific societies, hospitals, medical schools, nursing schools and Continued Medical Education providers as well as top-10 pharma companies in more than 35 countries.

Our mission is to empower healthcare professionals and students towards reducing the impact of clinical errors, every day and everywhere.

With a hugely talented team and with thanks to those who guided and supported us at the beginning of our journey, our story is made of a consistent combination of science, design, and technology to deliver cutting-edge solutions and continuously create value for our clients and business partners.

Body Interact is a clinical system adopted around the world to train learners in decision-making and critical thinking, with lifelike virtual patients, in hundreds of clinical scenarios. Body Interact enables both medical professionals and students to accelerate learning, develop clinical skills and achieve excellence in their performance.

Our vision is to be the most reliable, engaging and widely-adopted clinical education system in the world.

Our Guiding Principles

We design safe educational environments that are similar to the real world

We promote a structured cognitive approach for the appraisal of clinical-related errors and for skills improvement.

Correctly diagnosing and treating patients involves knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviours

Diagnoses are often carried out under time pressure, distributed cognition, and within financial constraints. We at Body Interact enable creative didactic and interdisciplinary approaches that greatly enhance competency-based education.

Most top healthcare professionals are integrative clinical thinkers, analytical problem solvers, and reflective learners

Aspects such as perception, reasoning, interpretation, judgment, and decision-making ensure patient safety across the healthcare experience.

Emotion is a critical element in the learning process

Our sensorial and gaming design enables learners’ emotional engagement. Understanding cognitive processes can improve the quality of our decisions, for example, on how to manage risk, especially under time pressure when our ability to examine and compare alternative choices is challenged.

When the learning fits the cognitive structures, not only is information effectively acquired but it is also retained in the long term

Most importantly, what is learned is put into clinical practice, thereby creating an impact.

We bridge the gap between theory and clinical contexts, in a controlled and safe environment

Thus, we help healthcare students feel prepared to begin their exposure to the clinical environment.

Our aspiration is to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 4

Throughout our story, we aim to do it by accelerating clinical education with high-quality standards, reducing the shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide, and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
