Kneeflow is an innovative wellness device company focused on providing innovative quality solutions to enable mobility and empower motion. The Kneeflow knee massager is an excellent example of this commitment, providing an effective way to massage the knee.
What Does Kneeflow Do?
Commonly referred to as the “wear and tear disease,” Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent form of arthritis. It is caused by the breakdown of cartilage, the protective tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. When this cartilage breaks down, it can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling; eventually, this deterioration will lead to bone rubbing against bone.
What’s worse is that this condition directly affects the joint and surrounding area. Osteoarthritis affects everyone differently, and the symptoms can affect the joints in many areas, such as the hands, hips, knees, and spine.
The Kneeflow knee massager is a cutting-edge device that can help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and other forms of knee pain and mobility issues. The Kneeflow knee massager utilizes a 3-in-1 therapy that leads to faster pain relief and better recovery from mobility issues.
The company’s core mission is to provide solutions that improve the quality of life for those with knee pain and other mobility issues. At Kneeflow, we promote an active lifestyle and aim to improve the way people live with our products.
We constantly innovate and design our products to enable our customers to achieve their goals and motivate them to chase their passions. We don’t just say we aim to promote healthy recovery and relief from debilitating knee pain because it’s profitable, but we truly understand the experience firsthand.
What Motivated Us to Start the Business?
Our founder’s life was limited by chronic knee pain, whether it was getting a good night’s sleep, going to the gym, holding her daughter, or enjoying outdoor physical activity. Early on, Nida Saif Syed realized that her condition was more than an injured joint, but something she would have to live with for the rest of her life.
Caged and trapped in a deteriorating state of mental health, she tried to understand how she ended up in this situation. “I started my professional life as a banker, and to be brutally honest, that was the life I knew,” said Nida. “I was constantly working, stuck on an endless loop of bringing home a paycheck. It was a mundane way of life, but at the same time, a lovely vacation was a way to go home, rest, and reset. That is until I realized it was all a dream; I was only fooling myself. The mundaneness of life was slowly eviscerating my passion for life, and I didn’t feel inspired in anything I did. Then I broke down, not emotionally (not yet) but physically.”
To make matters worse, Nida’s professional life as a banker didn’t fit with the worsening physical condition of her knees. Then, at 37, she developed the early stages of osteoarthritis in her knees. “Like a bolt of lightning flashing in the night, I was quick to realize the seriousness of the pain I was enduring. I summoned my inner courage and steeled myself, realizing that I was not going on that summer trek I had planned,” said Nida.
“Soon, more questions invaded my mind as the floodgates opened wide. ‘Would I be able to go on any journeys, for that matter?’ ‘Would my condition ever let me go back to the gym?’ ‘Would I ice skate?’ ‘Would I be able to run around and play with my child?’ Pessimism started to breed within me as I realized just how serious my condition had become. But as Rumi had thoughtfully penned, the wound is a place where light enters you. And thinking about this, my road to recovery began. I knew that this road would have obstacles, but I was ready to give it my all.”
With her rekindled dedication and powerful sense of passion, Nida set out to start something of her own, bound by a sense of purpose and fulfillment. After several attempts at maintaining a lasting solution that didn’t include costly and time-consuming therapies, she realized there was a better way to manage this condition. Although the treatments were effective and gave her relief, Nida researched the vast possibilities of technology and the potential to develop a product that would have longer-lasting effects.
The market is constantly flooded with new joint pain and injury technologies, but most products are too expensive and not backed by scientific evidence. So, Nida set out to develop an affordable product that could address her lifestyle and the needs of people like her. As she continued the research, Nida discovered a growing body of evidence to support the use of infrared laser light therapy to deliver powerful results.
With time and study, Nida uses the Kneeflow Massager to manage her pain, and the technology has enabled her to return to the passions that she nearly abandoned. But, more importantly, she can breathe easier, knowing that her mental and physical state is not at the mercy of her knee pain. The Kneeflow massager is a result of her journey, designed to serve as a powerful tool in managing chronic knee pain for anyone who needs it.
The Challenges the Business and Market Are Facing
With this opportunity comes the challenge of educating consumers on the science behind medical products and how to use them properly. Another challenge we face is that many people are unaware of our product and the potential benefits it can provide. In general, medical technology is facing other pressing issues such as:
- Scale – With the vast number of people who suffer from chronic pain, it can be challenging to reach them all and let them know that there is a solution that can help.
- Reimbursement – For new medical technologies to be adopted, they often need to be reimbursed by insurance companies which is a long and challenging process.
- Fraudulent Competition – With the increase in online sales, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of fraudulent products sold. These products often make false claims and can be dangerous for patients by causing further injury.
The Kneeflow team is aware of these challenges and constantly innovates to provide more accessible, affordable, and practical solutions.
