Richard Hanbury, Founder & CEO, Sana
Richard Hanbury is the founder of Sana Health; a neuromodulation platform for pain relief and deep relaxation. Richard developed the technology behind Sana to eradicate his own life-threatening pain problem following a spinal cord injury from a jeep crash near Sana in Yemen in 1992. Richard has an MBA (Healthcare) from the Wharton School, and DipLaw (College of Law London). The original benchtop device removed all his nerve damage pain in 3 months, saving his life. He has spent 28 years developing the Sana technology from the original benchtop device to the current device undergoing clinical trials. Sana uses pulsed light and sound, and a heart rate variability feedback loop, to guide the user into a deep state of relaxation. Pilot trials have been completed in Opioid Use Disorder and Fibromyalgia. Sana is in pivotal trials for Fibromyalgia and Neuropathic Pain (Mount Sinai), with trials about to start in Anxiety and PTSD (with a DoD Grant).
