Dr. Sanja Savić Kallesoe earned her honorific doctor's degree through 6 years of research work at Simon Fraser University in Environmental and Diving Physiology.  She is not trained as a physician nor has she applied for registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

BaroMedical was founded in 1999 by Dr.Sanja Savić Kallesoe based on her academic background and experience in biomedical systems (BAScEE), rehabilitation engineering (MASc), and environmental and diving physiology (PhD)

She has been involved in the field of hyperbaric physiology since 1986 when she initiated establishment of the first hyperbaric centre in her native country Slovenia to open in 1989.  She was a staff member for five years at Slovenia’s largest University Institute for Rehabilitation Engineering – the Jozef Stefan Institute – in the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, where she was pioneering the European development and implementation of electrical stimulators for use in stroke and spinal cord injury recovery at the rehabilitation centre “Soca”.

The Slovenian Ministry of Science and Technology awarded her a research grants to pursue academic collaborations in Canada in 1990 on the ground-breaking use of electrical stimulation and hyperbaric oxygenation to speed up wound healing.  

Throughout the 1990’ies she was teaching and leading research at Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, in collaboration with the Medical Hyperbaric Unit at Vancouver General Hospital, as well as BC Cancer Control Agency, and with international diving industries, CanDive, International Hard Suits, CanDive Marine Services and Mustang Industries.

It was through her academic and industry experiences she identified the need for general public access to timely hyperbaric oxygen therapy in BC.  This was the foundation for the first private hyperbaric therapy centre – BaroMedical Research Centre, to provide adjunctive services in the Vancouver region. 

BaroMedical Hyperbaric Centre operates both as a therapy centre as well as teaching facility. Health care provides attend training programs, seminars and presentations on hyperbaric oxygen therapy and microvascular assessment.

Dr. Savić Kallesoe is a regular attendant and speaker at national and international symposia on hyperbaric medicine and wound care.

Dr. Klaus Kallesoe joined BaroMedical Research Centre in 2001 with an extensive background in neurophysiology research (PhD) and rehabilitation engineering (MASc)

He acquired his Master of Applied Sciences in Biomedical Systems Engineering in his native country, Denmark, and continued in 1990 with biomedical research at the Neurosciences Division in the Foothill's Medical Centre, University of Calgary, Albert. He has co-authored several biotech patents related to neuroscience and rehabilitation inventions and has been involved in startup of biotech industries.

At BaroMedical Hyperbaric Oxygen Centre his technical expertise in bio-technologies has been the foundation for development of microcirculation assessment procedures to improve the success of hyperbaric therapy and to speed up recovery in rehabilitation.

He has been featured in talk shows and news media and is a regular attendee at national and international symposia on hyperbaric medicine.
