Harvinder started Motics after seeing his father struggle with physiotherapy. His father suffered from sciatica but found traditional physiotherapy non-engaging and failed to exercise regularly. This led to the creation of Motics, a wearable solution that engages patients and provides actionable insight into muscle function.

Harvinder hopes that the same technology can be used for both recovery and sports analytics to give teams the competitive edge in training.
