Mr. Caires grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he first began his studies of electrical engineering. At the young age of 18, Mr. Caires moved to Toronto Canada, where his fervour and passion for robotics and the human anatomy led him to pursue an academic career of automation and robotics at Centennial College. He continued his education at Ryerson University, where he was recognized and approbated innumerable times for his accomplishments, and received abounding awards during his undergraduate for his work in pneumatic artificial muscle actuators,
and brain-controlled interfaces. These awards included: the Ontario engineering Social awareness award; and first place for the Canadian engineering competition award, reflecting Mr. Caires’ assiduity in his many endeavours. Indeed in 2011, Mr. Caires co-founded Bionik Laboratories, with one of his university colleagues and friend. He undertook the position of CTO, and co-inventor of all technologies and patents munder Bionik Laboratories. Coeval with excelling in his positions, Mr. Caires helped raise over 20 million US dollars, and took Bionik (BNKL) public in 2015. In addition, Mr. Caires planned and executed the development of Bionik’s flagship product, and led an engineering team of over 15 engineers and developers. Today, Bionik retains over 5 products approved by the FDA, sells products in over 10 countries, and finished its first acquisition in Q1 2016. At Bionik Laboratories, Mr. Caires was able to augment his knowledge on both the sectors of business and engineering, which serves as superlative experience for his pursuit and vision with MATR Performance. Currently Mr. Caires works as the CEO of MATR performance which focus on developing computer vision technologies in the motion capture space that are portable and use artificial intelligence to improve rehabilitation.
