Natasha Williams, CEO & Founder
Natasha had a vision for creating a high performing hip protection product to help prevent hip fractures. Starting in 2008 with an initial focus on the NZ market, Natasha quickly recognized the need to focus on the US. In 2009 Natasha started travelling to the US, attending conferences, including presenting at some of the largest medical technology events.
In 2014 she was the co-author of a clinical paper summary presented at the International Symposium of Osteoporosis and published in International Osteoporosis Journal.
Natasha has been actively involved in a number of US healthcare groups, with a focus on those who are at risk of injury due to their advanced age or medical condition.
She was invited in 2014 to join the National Osteoporosis Foundation Corporate Advisory Roundtable and in 2017 to join their National Leadership Team as a US Ambassador.
In 2018, Natasha was granted an O-1 Visa for the US, awarded to people who demonstrate extraordinary ability in their field. This has enabled Natasha to relocate to the US, moving to Dallas, TX.
