Meet the Team

For us, pain is personal.

Our Mission

We're an international team of healthcare professionals, scientists, technology experts, and people who've lived with persistent pain.

Neuroscientists have recently made groundbreaking discoveries about neuroplasticity, pain, and sensory sensitivity.

Unfortunately, many of these insights sit quietly in academic journals.

Our mission is to turn these science discoveries into practical technologies that can benefit millions of people in the world.
