MYOLYN’s mission is to improve health and human performance by empowering people to move.
Millions of people suffer from the debilitating health effects caused by a lack of mobility. MYOLYN’s two founders have both seen these struggles first hand with their own loved ones struggling with health and mobility issues and recognize the need for continued, accessible therapeutic exercise. That’s why MYOLYN works every day to make the most advanced neuro-rehabilitation technology accessible to people in both the home and clinic environments.
Co-founders Matthew Bellman and Alan Hamlet established MYOLYN in 2013 during their engineering PhD studies at the University of Florida. Matt spent years researching the biomechanics of the human body and how to apply functional electrical stimulation (FES) in order to improve the health and functional ability of people with paralysis. During his research, he developed new stimulation techniques and control algorithms that led to a more powerful and efficient cycling workout for people with paralysis. This resulted in MYOLYN's first product: the MyoCycle FES Cycling Therapy System.
