Simon Allsop is determined to use technology to help improve the health of others like him. His current prototype is an operator-controlled back massage machine that can be operated from the prone position and complements offerings provided by medical professionals. Simon was inspired to develop his idea after multiple prototypes realising that a machine controlled by the patient gave a lot of precision control over the massage. Having seen the benefits that regular, proactive massages have had for his own back health, he’s decided to develop his own product and bring it to the world.
Simon has worked in a number of places around the world, but has always wanted to return to South Gippsland where he grew up, and cherishes the picturesque setting and natural beauty of the region.
