The health and wellness industry is worth trillions of dollars and has helped countless people around the world improve their lives. Many companies have made significant impacts in this space, but not many people know about the CEOs who made it happen behind the scenes. Don’t worry — we’ve done the research to bring you six CEOs who are making a notable impact on the health and wellness field below. 

1. Rest Easy With Transfer Master

Transfer Master’s CEO Aaron Goldsmith has helped foster the success of high-quality adjustable hospital beds for home and medical facilities. Transfer Master offers multiple hospital beds that are designed to support mobility and medical needs of all kinds. Beyond their utilitarian functions, these beds are also designed to look good in any home setting, so it doesn’t feel like a clinical environment. 

You can add additional features to your hospital bed, such as bamboo rail covers, joystick or button hand controls, egress floor lighting, a catheter hook, and so much more. Certain beds, such as the Supernal Hi-Low hospital bed, have a wall-hugging feature that allows people to elevate their heads and reach their nightstands from any position. Transfer Master has been around since 1993 and has become one of the most trusted companies to allow wheelchair users to transfer independently in and out of bed. 

2. Optimal Hydration With The IV Doc

The IV Doc’s CEO, Adam Nadelson, has helped many people stay hydrated and reenergized with affordable IV services. If you’re in need of IV therapy, The IV Doc makes house calls, hotel room calls, and even private office calls. 

Traveling to a hospital or a medical office can be stressful and takes a toll on the body. The IV Doc removes this burden, and a highly-trained medical professional will hook you up to an IV. You can relax knowing you’re supporting your wellness levels from the comfort of your own home. 

Scheduling a call is easy and fast. You choose the city you’re in, schedule an appointment, consult with a licensed physician, and relax until your medical professional arrives. The IV drip therapy usually only takes 30-45 minutes, and the effects can be felt almost immediately. IV fluid is absorbed directly into the bloodstream with 100% efficiency and is the fastest way to deliver electrolytes, vitamins, medications, and fluid to the body. Whether you’re struggling with a hangover, seasonal allergies, or a nasty stomach bug, IV therapy might be able to help. 

3. Compression Support With Copper Fit

The CEO at Copper Fit, Andy Khubani, has helped many people soothe pain, muscle stiffness, and soreness with their high-quality performance fabrics. Copper Fit believes in less pain and increased mobility, which is why they create compression products and supportive options that can get you on your way to being a healthier you. Copper Fit is constantly innovating with new technologies, including copper-infused odor-reducing fabric, as well as sweat-wicking, cooling, and motion-activated features. 

They have plenty of products, such as Zen Step Comfort Insoles, Energy Sport Ankle Socks, ICE Compression Knee Sleeves, and much more. These are designed to support aching joints, help you recover from injuries, and allow you to embrace a more active lifestyle at any age. This brand has been advocated by many celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow and Jerry Rice. Copper Fit believes in its products so much they allow you to try them for 30 days, and if you don’t love them, you’ll get your money back. 

4. Take a Walk With Atoms 

Atoms’ CEO Sidra Qasim has helped simplify the modern-day shoe to effectively help people feel more comfortable on a daily basis. Many workers spend a good chunk of their workdays on their feet, which takes a toll over time. That’s why it’s important to invest in good footwear that supports your personal well-being and overall health. Atoms only offers two models of shoes, but these shoes have helped people get their steps in with comfort and ease. 

Atoms Model 000 is 100% vegan and recyclable, not to mention that they’re built to be the most comfortable shoes on the market. The midsole foam has light, airy cushioning, and the shoe features an antimicrobial copper threaded lining that helps kill bacteria as well as prevent shoe odor. It has a lightweight feel, thanks to a proprietary blend of EVA foam and blown rubber. Stretch laces also make the shoes easy to put on and take off. 

Model 001 has all the same features but comes with a redesigned outsole for maximum support and stability. For those of us who are on our feet all day, there’s a solution to the aches and pains the constant standing can bring. 

5. Track Important Metrics With Oura

Oura’s CEO, Tom Hale, has helped people get a better handle on their sleep and their health with the personal activity tracker called the Oura Ring. Sleep is essential to your health, and the Oura Ring gives you a sleep score to tell you how well you sleep every night. You can track your sleep patterns and receive guidance on how to improve your sleep quality. Plus, you’ll learn about how your blood oxygen levels affect your body, and you’ll know if those late-night coffees negatively impact your sleep. 

The Oura Ring tracks your activity levels, heart rate, and training frequency to help you hit your goals. This device helps track more than 30 activities and gives you credit for every move you make throughout the day. Oura Ring also tracks over 20 different body signals to tell how ready you are for the day ahead. With your Oura Ring, you’ll also get access to a content library full of guided audio sessions for energy boosts, meditation, sleep, focus, and more, so that you can truly prioritize your health. 

6. Breathe Easy With Airthings 

Airthings’ CEO, Oyvind Birkenes, has helped people around the world improve their awareness and gain deeper control of their air quality with a simple sensor. Breathing healthy air is essential for your overall health and well-being. That’s why Airthings helps the average consumer monitor contaminants inside their home and reduce the risk of exposure to harmful elements such as pollen, mold, radon, and carbon monoxide. 

The Airthings app has several features that can give you a comprehensive overview of your air quality at a glance. You’ll be able to look at color-coded indicators such as humidity, radon levels, temperatures, and more. You can also view detailed graphs that closely examine air quality trends over the short, medium, and long term. If you’d like to know that the air you’re breathing is good for you, Airthings can change the game.
