Solid Ground’s goal is to give people in operational occupations the possibilities we did not have ourselves.
We want to contribute to an increased degree of operational performance and greater possibilities for proper and realistic preparations. Solid Ground focus on those who need it most, when they need it and on their own terms. The preparations need to be accessible without traveling, loss of production and where you chose to complete it.
Knowing how fear and stress affects your memory and understanding how the central nervous system both strengthens and disturbs your thoughts and performance lays the basis for our concept.
To perform properly you need to train properly and we are bringing a new dimension into ‘life and death’ occupations.
Trygg-Grunn AS was founded in 2017 by Per-Erik Daviknes and Geir Nes. They saw the great challenges the health care workers in Norway are faced with every day and night, and knew there was a better way to prepare for this.

All categories for workers in Norwegian municipalities now has tailor made scenarios made for them and their specific profession and needs in BASIC VR.
