UHWK (you-hawk):




“Ability is what you are capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it” -Lou Holtz




Throughout his life Shea has been a student of the game. Whether he was playing, refereeing or coaching sports, an inventive mind and curious attitude had often led him to thinking “there has got to be a better way”. Following an experience-rich career in the Canadian Hockey League, Shea found himself at Dalhousie University putting his ideas to test on a pursuit to discover and create the next big thing.

His first breakthrough came from his idea for a revolutionary knee-brace that would change the way people with systematic knee-injury or muscle atrophy interact with knee-braces as we knew them then. The result: Spring Technology Inc. – a specialty orthopaedics design and manufacturing company changing the lives of thousands all over the world with the advancement of his revolutionary liquid-spring loaded knee-brace.

The same motivation which sparked the knee-brace innovation (an injury playing hockey and lack of product-fit), led to the birth of UHWK.  Shea’s experience as a varsity athlete had him dreaming of a tool to improve the cognitive functions of an athlete and record the last games of his career from his perspective that he could thereon relive forever.  UHWK has built on that mission to connect, educate and entertain athletes and sports enthusiasts all over the world and will continue to reach for the top.
