Kat Chrysostom is the founder and owner of Benefab® Products. Her mission is to take great ideas and create products that make a difference in the lives and health of horses, people, and dogs.
As a horse person and rider since childhood, in 2011, she suffered a riding injury that left her temporarily paralyzed with a triple fracture of the C-2 vertebrae. She was told she would never ride again. After three long months in a halo traction device, she found herself left with four excruciatingly painful and slow healing holes in her skull.
Doctors recommended far-infrared light therapy. Over time, the pain and swelling decreased, her mobility improved and my migraines diminished. She became fascinated by the therapeutic impact of far-infrared light therapy and discovered how infused fabrics can have a similar effect. Through rigorous research, she discovered that electromagnetism can be a natural healing remedy and how it helps joint and muscle stiffness, edema, and circulatory disorders—both in the human and animal bodies.
Throughout her journey to recovery, she studied in the Far East and attended the Shanghai HORFA equine trade show. While at the show, she met with a Taiwanese manufacturer who fabricated technical materials that incorporated therapeutic properties that emit a low-range, invisible ray of light (far-infrared rays) on the electromagnetic spectrum.
Soon after, she began designing and testing the first products in the Benefab® line. Now, she works with veterinarians, therapists, and professional athletes around the world to educate people about the performance benefits and healing properties of far-infrared fabrics, medical-grade magnets, and electromagnetism.
Designed to be an important asset to a rehabilitative and preventative health regimen, Benefab has considered all factors when it comes to comfort, durability, and most of all, effectiveness. The line is modern, sleek, and intricately-designed, while also remaining science-based and research-backed.
