For episode 117 we're learning from the best of the best companies that intersect at the crossroads for the future of health and wellness technology.
This is a topic we’ve explored over the past 100+ shows on Wellness Force Radio, but for 117 we’re going the deepest we’ve ever gone to address the most important question around this type of technology, much more important than just technology itself:
How exactly can health and wellness technology including apps, wearables, smart garments, and smart devices truly help us get more physically and emotionally intelligent so we can live life well?
This is a big question that will affect not just national, but global health, so this deserves some big answers. That’s why today on the podcast we're bringing you not just one, but three doctors and industry experts in the fields of smart garments, with Dr. Tim Brown, founder of IntelliSkin
, in brain neuroplasticity and neuropriming, with Dr. Daniel Chao, Co-Founder of Halo Neuroscience
, and how the future of doctors will care for patients at home is actually here right now, with Dr. Renee Dua, Co-Founder of Heal.
If you’re a tech-focused wellness enthusiast, or if you’re brand new to exploring how technology can help you in your wellness journey, you're equally going to love this episode...
Many of the concepts we’re discussing today are brand-new to the show, and we've handpicked these guests out of all the noise online to get clarity on what brands in wellness technology we can use today that will help secure better personal wellness for our future.

About Our Featured Guests
Dr. Tim Brown, Founder, IntelliSkin
IntelliSkin inventor, Dr. Tim Brown, grew to understand his future creation while working as the medical director on the ASP surf and AVP volleyball tours during the 1980’s. As an early innovator in functional taping, he developed a hybrid kinesiology technique known as SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Taping). Used on everyone from Olympians to NFL players, the technique quickly became a staple in the athletic world as it allowed injured athletes to compete despite their injuries.
Dr. Brown’s instinctive techniques got athletes asking for taping remedies so often, that he needed something that could do the job when he wasn’t there. Many late nights of trial and error using remnants of old wetsuits and rash guards, he devised a wearable technology that mimicked his taping technique. Dr. Brown’s goal was to take what he had learned in designing and come up with a comfortable, Smart Compression shirt that would clinically improve posture and spinal alignment for everyone, whether you’re an elite athlete or a weekend warrior. Dr. Brown’s ultimate goal is to help everybody to look better, feel better and perform better. He continues to pursue that goal every day.
Daniel Chao is a neurotech entrepreneur, specializing in devices that improve brain performance. Currently, Dan is co-founder and CEO of Halo Neuroscience, a venture-backed human performance company based in San Francisco. The company's first product, Halo Sport, is the world's first neurostimulation system built specifically for athletes.
Prior to Halo, Dan was the head of business development at NeuroPace, where he helped raise $250M in capital to develop the world's first closed-loop neuromodulation device, winning FDA approval for the treatment of epilepsy in a unanimous 13-0 vote. Before NeuroPace, Dan was a consultant at McKinsey & Company in the New York office, and he received his M.D. and M.S. in neuroscience from Stanford University.
Renee Dua, Co-Founder, Heal
Dr. Renee Dua is Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Heal – an LA-based start-up providing on-demand house call medicine. Dr. Dua is a Board certified nephrologist and internal medicine doctor who has served as Chief of Medicine at Valley Presbyterian and Simi Valley Hospital. After building a thriving private practice and also teaching medicine at UCLA, Dr. Dua embarked on her greatest adventure, being mom to her first child, a now 15-month old little boy.
It was her son that led her to create Heal, because she knew moms and dads everywhere needed an easier way to see a doctor. As a mom-doctor doing her first start-up, Dr. Dua often jokes she’s a doctor-mom-preneur. Dr. Dua resides in the Pacific Palisades with her husband and son.
