Kinova's founder and CEO was assisting his uncles living with muscular dystrophy. An uncle of his invented a makeshift arm to independently pick up objects which sparked the desire to bring this idea far beyond his uncle’s design.
In 2006 Kinova was founded and their first robotic arm was launched, which changed the paradigm of robotics by creating safe technologies with a human-centric purpose.
Kinova's team of ambassadors are very active in local schools and networking events, from presenting robotics 101 to elementary schools, to mentoring high school and college students in their projects for robotics competitions, and participating in open-table discussions on robotics engineering in some of the top universities.
