About Our Team

For more than 35 years, John Saringer, the founder and CEO of Saringer Life Sciences, has been developing advanced technologies for mobilizing the human body. Since graduating from the University of Toronto as a Professional Engineer (1977), he has been specializing in biomechanics and the development of products to accelerate healing and mitigate the effects of immobility. In the early 1980s, he was a Research Associate at the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. Candidate at McMaster University but left academia in 1982 to build Toronto Medical Corp, where he was the CEO and director of R&D until the company was sold in 1997.

In 1978, Saringer and Dr. R.B. Salter began their 20-year collaboration designing and building passive movement devices. Together they promoted the worldwide acceptance and commercialization of Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) technology.

Since then, Saringer has developed other products such as the Iceotherm, a device for treating chronic pain and triggering a natural healing response from the body, the Venowave, a portable device which increases blood circulation and a help mitigate the harmful effects of immobility.
