Thinkers
Innovation comes when you take risks. Although we’re fearless, we’re not reckless. We learn fast, take chances, and know nothing is born perfect but we strive for it.
Status Quo
Challengers
Things are impossible until they’re not. Predicting injury before it occurs is a lofty goal, but we exist to challenge the norm to elevate the standard of care.
Curious
Minds
We are passionately driven, fierce listeners, and ambitious explorers. Inventing the future requires us to be curious and free to use our imaginations.
