New York, NY, January 18, 2024 — Today, Kaia Health announces a major milestone in its commitment to ensuring frictionless, affordable access to clinically validated digital pain management for everyone. Developed in collaboration with Physical Therapists (PTs), health coaches, and Spanish-speaking users, Kaia Health’s signature musculoskeletal (MSK) therapy – complete with coaching and clinical oversight – is now available in Spanish.
With more than 40 million Spanish speakers in the U.S., the introduction of a comprehensive Spanish-language platform represents a significant stride towards addressing health equity, access, and outcomes for an expanding segment of the population.
Gustavo Castrogómez, a Kaia Health user, shared his experience, saying, “Having a digital pain-management app entirely in Spanish has been a game changer. It allows me to address my pain, whether I’m at home or on the go, and ensures that I understand each exercise so I can perform it properly and get the most out of the experience.”
In Spanish, users can immerse themselves in an array of educational and therapeutic content, leverage personalized MSK treatment plans tailored to individual needs, and access therapy exercises with clear Spanish voice-overs. Spanish speaking health coaches are also available to support, nurture, and equip users in achieving their health goals.
“Being the first company to provide an AI-powered MSK solution in Spanish goes beyond addressing a market gap; it guarantees access to a substantial segment of the U.S. MSK population. This underscores Kaia Health’s commitment to health equity and ensures everyone can seamlessly access our innovative musculoskeletal platform anytime, anywhere,” said Konstantin Mehl, Founder and CEO, Kaia Health.
