Enovis, the parent company of DJO, announced that it entered into a strategic partnership with Kelvi for heating and cooling therapies.
Kelvi, which develops hot and cold therapy products, will work with Enovis to deliver industry-leading therapies for rehabilitation, recovery and performance enhancement for patients and athletes of all abilities. According to a news release, DJO (as part of Enovis) will become the exclusive distributor in the orthopedic market of Kelvi’s heating and cooling therapy products.
Kelvi offers a multimodal approach to heating and cooling. It’s developed “smart” KelviTEC technology that applies heating and cooling principles for medical and athletic recovery while also providing convenience for athletes, athletic trainers and medical technicians, coupled with high precision, tight temperature control, trackability and repeatability, Enovis said.
“As we expand and grow as a med-tech company, we are excited about the impact and potential of this partnership for our customers and patients,” Enovis VP of Marketing for Bracing and Supports Guy Guglielmino said in the release. “Kelvi products, powered by patented KelviTEC science, are ideally positioned to complement the Enovis mission of creating better together, borne from the belief that activity and movement are key to living a healthier lifestyle, better treatment outcomes, and improved healthcare economics for all.”
Enovis President of Bracing and Supports, Jason Anderson, added that the company’s “robust and best-in-class distribution capabilities” offers an exciting future when coupled with Kelvi’s technology. Kelvi CEO Julio Vergara said Enovis is a “perfect match” for its products.
“At Kelvi, we continue to revolutionize how thermotherapy is delivered — we spent more than seven years developing our innovative technology — and our next generation console, to be carried exclusively by Enovis for the orthopedic market, will optimize outcomes for athletes and post-operative patients,” Vergara said. “We are humbled by the journey, from our founders’ vision at UCLA through our collaboration with athletes and thought leaders. We are excited to partner with the innovation leader in our space, aligned with getting and keeping people moving. We look forward to being part of that.”
