DarioHealth (NASDAQ: DRIO), a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics market, announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Upright Technologies Ltd., a digital musculoskeletal (“MSK”) company; the acquisition will be in the form of a stock transaction. The acquisition is designed to expand DarioHealth’s multi-condition platform into the $213 billion musculoskeletal market and create one of the most comprehensive digital health platforms. The move also brings together complementary companies with industry-leading consumer engagement and clinical outcomes.
