Welcome to the Haem-o-mat

Discover your sport

Haemophilia and sports ... for sure!


Although sport can cause injuries and thus possibly increase the risk of factor administration, without sport the chances of bleeding are even greater - so what can be done? Start Haem-o-mat !


With the Haem-o-mat, we would like to give you a helping hand to become active in sports. Based on your preferences, you will be suggested sports and in addition, you will be put in contact with experts who will support you and tell you what you or your new coach should look out for.

Sports suitable for people with haemophilia Show

Haem-o-Mat: The Idea

With the Haem-o-mat we want to get you or your son to the sport easily, safely and quickly. It is often not easy to find the right sport for haemophiliacs - either the sports are too much or too little demanding and in the end you always come back to swimming. But swimming can't be the only sport suitable for haemophiliacs - that's what we thought and developed the Haem-o-mat.


In just 5 minutes, you or your son will be given a selection of sports tailored to your needs, along with experts who will give you tips and knowledge to get you started in your new sport with as few injuries as possible and as much fun as possible!

Information about Haem-O-Mat

Active sport is the best way to prevent injuries and bleeding in haemophiliacs. However, from our own experience and from many years of discussions with those affected, we know that many people find it difficult to decide on the most suitable sport for them - the Haem-O-Mat is designed to help them do this.

The Haem-O-Mat was developed by IGH e.V. in close cooperation with Dr. Axel Seuser, MD, who is known worldwide for his experience in the field of "Sport and Haemophilia" through books, lectures and the Fit-for-Life program in the community.

Analogous to the Wahl-O-Mat, which is commonly used in federal and state elections, the Haem-O-Mat would like to offer affected haemophiliacs and their relatives an overview of suitable sports with the disease in order to be able to use the various advantages of an active life.

We are happy to collaborate with an additional cooperative partner since early 2020 - the Sports Science Department from the Bergische University Wuppertal led by Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Hilberg is supporting us in further individualizing the Haem-O-Mat considering previous injuries and many more details.
