Jon Kabance, RKT
Enrolled member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation
Jon graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998 with a double major in Kinesiology and Food Science & Nutrition. For many years, as a registered kinesiotherapist, he practiced in a rehabilitative capacity helping collegiate, professional, and industrial athletes recover from and prevent musculoskeletal injuries.
Fourteen years ago, Jon founded BIOKINETIX with the idea of reversing how medicine is practiced.
Rather than simply reacting by treating employee injuries, his vision was to proactively reduce the risk of injury by engaging the workforce in preventive exercise and practical education. As President of BIOKINETIX, Jon has been masterful in combining his expertise in exercise science, kinesiology and education with the real-world demands companies face every day as they look to reduce employee injury rates.
BIOKINETIX has successfully developed and implemented customized, results-driven injury prevention programs for organizations across a wide range of industries, including UPS, Del Monte, Southern Company, and US Foods.
Staffed by certified Athletic Trainers, BIOKINETIX programs provide preventive exercise, medical ergonomics, evidence-based education, and one-on-one support to employees in order to identify and mitigate at-risk behavior.
As a national speaker, Jon has been able to successfully guide occupational safety decision-makers into applying the proactivity of leading indicators within their Safety Management Systems. His thought leadership has helped clients save over $100 million through strategic prevention and wellness programs.
