Founder's Story

Dennis “DJ” Schmitt

Founder/CEO

As a disabled veteran I went on a journey to discover a way to recover from multiple injuries I received serving my country. After years of travel and research I discovered electro muscle stimulation. I was surprised by the amount of research on EMS that already existed and could not understand why it was not being utilized for a wider variety of applications.

After a deep dive into the industry and working with multiple EMS companies as a Distributor, Board of Advisor, and Director for these companies it became clear to me, that research-based science, customer and technical support, improved business model, and expanded applications and indications for use were not sufficient in capturing what this technology could offer. The gaps left the market to be primed for consolidation.

Due to my entrepreneurial background and years of industry experience, I knew that so much more could be accomplished by developing the most advanced system on the market. Building a team of the best doctors, engineers, and human athletic trainers we developed a product poised to disrupt the industry. The Neuro20 Pro System was built from the feedback of the client, and our corporate practices provide a model that “efficiently” works for the distributor, the clinician, and the end user.
