Los Angeles, CA., March 10, 2022 – OrthoSpineNews –
Life science company Forme®, creator of patented posture transforming and better breathing wearables, announced today the appointment of two new members to its Board of Directors: Yongsoo Huh and Dr. Hyun W. Bae. Forme, founded by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Stephen Liu, is committed to building therapeutic wearables to elevate human performance. With these strong additions to its board, Forme is continuing to place great value in scientific and global business talent in its mission to better health and performance.
Dr. Hyun Bae is a professor of orthopedic surgery, Director of Spine Education at Cedars-Sinai Spine Center, where he has distinguished himself as a leader for developing leading edge, minimally invasive spine surgery and dynamic stabilization practices. “I was involved in several research and development studies with Forme, and the chain of benefits were convincing. Forme wearables naturally engage the wearer’s body and muscle memory to what good posture feels like, effortlessly rotating the shoulders back and down while opening up the chest, and hips. This change in posture lengthens the spine and arms, while promoting better blood and oxygen flow to the lungs, muscles and brain for faster recovery. I myself wear it for seeing patients, performing surgery, and playing golf. I am honored to be a board member strategizing in Forme’s spine health innovations,” said Dr. Bae. Bae was a founder and board member of Engage Surgical, which sold for $135 million to Smith + Nephew in January 2022. Bae is also Chairman and Chief Medical Officer of Prosidyan, a developer of synthetic bioactive bone graft products.
Yongsoo Huh is CEO of GS Energy, the energy holdings company of GS Group, with business domains ranging from refineries, petrochemical, gas, power, renewables and new energy initiatives. He serves on several prestigious boards, including the Georgetown University Mcdonough School of Business, the International Advisory Board for the Atlantic Council, the Korean National Museum Society, the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra and the American Ballet Theater. Huh is also an Honorary Chairman of the Korean National Ballet Society, and an International Council Member of Serpentine Galleries in London and the Prado Museum in Madrid. “Forme is a game changer! They are the first total body enhancement products I have experienced; and the health benefits are firmly rooted in science. Dr. Liu’s passion and his team’s dedication to changing spine health and human performance were the main reason for me to join the board. Seeing the impact of Forme’s wearables on the volleyball team of GS Caltex Seoul KIXX and the dancers at the American Ballet Theater proved the effectiveness of Forme’s technology and I’m looking forward to adding value to the company as a board director,” said Huh.
“It’s our great pleasure and honor to have great minds join our board and bring invaluable perspective to the company. Mr. Huh is a global leader successful in many endeavors. Dr. Bae is a key opinion leader in spine medical devices, and his research and entrepreneurship have been instrumental in helping advances in spine health,” said Dr. Liu, Founder/Chairman of Forme.
