Boston is the birthplace of so many things rooted in innovation and fitness, and the new kid on the block is PACT led by local engineer and entrepreneur Bridget Hunter-Jones.
Hunter-Jones is leading a team to make personalized recovery possible with a percussive muscle massager that pairs with a handheld scanner and app to let you know the level of intensity you need.
The Chief Invention Officer is someone Hunter-Jones knows well, has worked with since she was a kid, and has looked up to for her entire life: her dad, Ian Hunter.
Jones had a home lab where his daughter could join him and lean on when things got hard as she navigated the male-dominated industry.
Jones explains that he is not surprised by his daughter’s ambition and success and enjoys working with her.
Hannah Donnelly spoke with Hunter-Jones about the mainly female staff, the device, what makes it different, and her journey bringing the product to market. Watch above.
