“Probably the most glaring problem with massage is patients’ fear of bodily safety,” said Christian Mackin, co-founder and CEO. “In a post-pandemic world, contactless technologies are increasingly popular. A lot of people don’t like being touched by someone they don’t know. And with allegations of sexual misconduct in the news from time to time, the massage industry sometimes struggles with its reputation. Robots solve this problem precisely because they are not human. »
“Ultimately, we offer Robot-as-a-Service (RaaS) monthly subscription for B2B wellness clinics. And we expect their price to be approximately equal to a therapist’s monthly income. And other issues like affordability, therapist shortages, and time management are addressed by our comprehensive business plan, with guidance from our advisory board.
