About Healer Tech and the FlexrGO!
Healer Tech is a health-tech data science company. Our mission is to empower patients to fully visualize their body’s journey of healing; to create engaging platforms that enrich the care experience for providers; and, to advantageously position practices for the coming evolutions of healthcare and population health management.
Healer Tech will redefine the way society experiences healthcare and healing by seamlessly bridging our natural attraction for optimum wellness, empowered by the precision of technology.
As with most great stories, Healer Tech’s began with one of personal experience with the realization that healthcare needed something more.
When Founder & CEO, Fox Cheng, was still a Ph.D. student of Math in UCSD, he suffered from low back pain due to improper exercise movement and poor posture. During the treatment, he became intimately familiar with how Physical Therapy can elevate one’s health and the human experience.
Fox began studying the neuromusculoskeletal system and discovered that EMG is the best technology to detect the muscular activities. When combined with biofeedback, patients intuitively visualize their care experience and begin taking control over their healing process — gaining immediate trust for the attending clinician.
Fox’s Physical Therapist friend and colleague informed him that EMGs are hard to use; moreover, for clinical use, the setup time is too costly and the machines involved are far too expensive. Fox’s immediate thought: “Let’s develop an affordable and easy to use EMG system for clinics!”
The founding team was established along with Healer Tech as a company. Ideas were put into design, practice, refinement, and production. And, the rest… is now, HERE!
