The Kelvi Leadership Team
From our lab to your training room.
Kelvi began with an idea spawned in the physiology lab of the medical school at a major American university. A talented team of physicians, engineers across various disciplines, industrial designers and business entrepreneurs have worked together to transform this innovative idea into a patented, commercial product. While today Kelvi focuses on bringing this new technology to elite athletes and sports training rooms, the technology has broader applications in non-sports medicine and many, many other and unrelated fields.
