Our CEO has experienced back pain first hand. When it began interfering with his productivity as a hard working engineering student, he started thinking about how to address the issue. Bringing together a talented team with similar complaints also hoping to pursue research and careers unencumbered by back pain and stress, we soon realized our idea could help millions of people just like us.By applying our engineering expertise, we’ve developed the technology for a product which helps us – and you! - sit better, feel better, and lead a longer & healthier lives. We created Darma.
