Today (16th April 2020), KYMIRA turns 7 years old and to celebrate we are offering 7 days of prizes that include bundled giveaways, discounts and a week of great content. Look for details on our social media channels.
Over the last 7 years we’ve helped many people that suffer with medical conditions associated with chronic pain, circulatory issues and rehabilitation from soft tissue damage, whether that be from a fall, or an operation.
Based on an idea he had from reading a research paper about growing plants in space, founder and CEO Tim Brownstone started on a long a quest. His goal was to develop a product that would help improve the quality of people’s lives and aide their recovery.
We asked Tim to reflect on how it all started:
“Thirteen years ago, a spark of an idea took hold of my imagination. The idea came from reading some NASA research that documented the use of infrared (IR) light, to make plants grow quicker in space. The idea itself was that if IR could make plant cells grow and replicate quicker, maybe it could help animal cells, and therefore people too. Wounds could be healed faster; athletes could recover quicker from injuries; and you could treat or manage a range of chronic illnesses to boot.
Following 6 years of academic research, on this day in 2013, I took the plunge to take that spark of an idea and start putting it to good use. Seven years ago, KYMIRA was born.”
The last 7 years are just the beginning of the adventure. KYMIRA Medical will keep pushing the boundaries by constantly researching how our technology can help improve their quality of life, recover quicker from soft tissue damage and eventually save lives.
