Following the birth of her son, Kim was seeking a fresh approach. She knew two things to be true: she wanted to find a good balance between a career and being there for her family; and she enjoyed using her clinical knowledge and working one-on-one with people in a way that was unique to Occupational Therapy profession.
She found a unique opportunity – quite literally – when she started worked for UNYQ.
Pronounced ‘unique’, UNYQ was established in 2014 with a one-two punch to inspire the health sciences industry – they lived and breathed an innovative spirit and a drive to empower patients and users across an international network of clinics. With products sold all over the world, UNYQ maintains offices in San Francisco, Seville, Spain, and Charlotte.
What’s truly special about UNYQ is not only their passion, but also their talent and ability to redesign prosthetics and orthotics using digital manufacturing, precise technology, data and research. Their patient-centric philosophy means users have several options – select from the company’s collections or work directly with UNYQ’s design team to customize a unique, signature style at an affordable price. Their first product was a line of stylish prosthetic covers for lower limb amputees named UNYQ Armor™. They also offer UNYQ Align™, modern, stylish, and breathable scoliosis treatment options based on bracing research and patient feedback.
The technology and design – both in form and function – are always customized and personalized for each individual. “Not one person or their body has the same components or needs,” Kim notes. “Which means we need to create solutions that are unique to them.”
