Kim Pomares


When the therapy was clinically proven by randomized controlled trials at the University of California, Irvine, Kim decided to found Mendability with the goal to bring the therapy to a wide audience. He then oversaw the productization of the therapy and the creation of the tele-health delivery system, which empowers parents and caregivers to perform the therapy at home or on location.

Fun fact: Kim has never, ever won a game of Mario Kart against any of his 5 kids...</br.
