MedRhythms is a company that is committed to providing people access to the highest quality of rehabilitation. To execute on this goal, we combine deep learning and low cost sensors to create digital therapeutics for rehab. The first product uses music to help people recover their movement. We are starting here because it has been shown to be more effective than physical therapy, it is a new tool for rehab, and we have deep expertise in neurologic music therapy.
Each of the products developed on our platform will be built on a closed-loop circuit; data captured with sensors is fed into our software platform, and proprietary music algorithms deliver music based on cutting edge research of music and neuroscience. Ultimately, the technology will increase accessibility and affordability for those with neuro injury or disease.
MedRhythms is comprised of an excited, passionate team driven to make a difference in the world by providing the highest quality of care to those in need. As a member of the MedRhythms team it is expected that you are diligent and timely with your work, ask questions immediately if you don’t understand something, commit to doing the right thing that aligns with the mission of our organization, act as a servant leader making the people around you smarter, and give honest and direct feedback to arrive at the best answer.
