Sword Health, which created a digital solution for the treatment of musculoskeletal pathologies, was one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States between 2019 and 2022, according to the USA publication INC. 

The startup, founded by Virgílio Bento, was considered the 26th fastest-growing company in the USA, with growth of 10.96%. It is now third only among companies in the health sector.

The INC magazine list, which is published every year, includes a total of 5,000 companies and its criteria are the increase in revenue over the last three years (around 11,000%) and the growth in the number of employees (from 75 to 788), the company reveals. 

"These distinctions fill us with pride and make us look back on our journey with satisfaction, but what really matters is the daily impact of our work on the lives of our patients and the number of people we've managed to free from pain. In this respect, I'm also proud to say that our results are equally impressive," said Virgílio Bento in a statement.

In first place is CarBridge, with growth of 157,14 % in three years.

Sword Health continues to grow this year, at least in terms of the number of employees. The company founded by Virgílio Bento announced at the beginning of March that it wanted to hire more than 300 professionals globally this year, with around 150 in Portugal.
