Former Blackberry Senior Vice President Mike Galbraith has joined Kitchener-Waterloo's Thalmic Labs, creators of the revolutionary MYO armband, as CFO.

Our team members are excited to continue pushing the boundaries of current technology and are enthusiastic about introducing our first product, MYO, to users around the world."
