NC Company Overview
Kaia Health is a technology company that focuses on software-based healthcare, with an emphasis on treating people who suffer from chronic pain. Its apps are available for both iOS and Android devices from the relevant app store. Kaia’s apps include a number of helpful features, including tailored exercise programs that can help reduce back pain, educational modules that can help the patient understand the underlying causes of their pain and how things like posture can affect it, and even a Motion Coach facility that uses the phone’s camera to ‘watch’ the patient’s posture and movement and analyze any areas for improvement.
Kaia Health, based in New York, USA, and Munich, Germany, was founded in 2015 by Manuel Thurner and Konstantin Mehl. Exercise-based treatments have long been shown to be very effective in treating chronic back pain, and the founders wanted to develop a way that this kind of therapy could be managed using software, which also could connect the users to back pain experts. Kaia Health evolved to include smart tailoring of the recommended exercises to the patient, giving a helpful form of therapy that anybody can try.
As of May 2019, Kaia Health’s products have been featured in health, technology, and mainstream media, including Forbes, Venture Beat, Medical and Life Sciences News, and Digital Health Age.
