Augment Therapy was founded in 2017 when CEO Lindsay Watson, a pediatric physical therapist from Chagrin Falls, Ohio, was searching for a way to solve the problems she was experiencing in her own physical therapy practice. Lindsay had spent years criss-crossing Geauga County, Ohio, and was frustrated with the inefficiency of treating kids once a week, with no way to help them exercise on a daily basis for faster progress. Lindsay set out to find a way to encourage and motivate them to exercise and Augment Therapy was born.
In 2018, Lindsay met CTO Steve Blake, a computer programmer from Pittsfield, New Hampshire. As co-founders they have developed an interactive platform that maintains the integrity of physical therapy exercises, while also motivating kids by using the medium they are most comfortable in – technology.
