Description

COMPANY HISTORY — A Legacy of Innovation

Thought Technology Ltd. is the brainchild of Dr. Hal Myers and Lawrence Klein, who combined their professional skills with interests in psychology, biomechanical engineering and athletics to create biofeedback equipment that was more user-friendly and portable. Their initial effort, launched nearly a quarter of a century ago, produced the GSR 2, the world’s first handheld biofeedback device for the clinician, consumer and athletic markets. The GSR 2 is based on the principle that stress levels could be precisely measured electronically by translating tiny, tension- related changes in the skin pores into a rising or falling tone. Over a quarter of a million GSR 2s have been sold, many of which are still in use today.

In 1980, the GSR 2 earned an impressive endorsement from Dr. Hans Selye, the “Father of Stress.” Dr. Selye recommended the use of the GSR 2 in any stress management program. Since then, numerous leading clinicians from major medical institutions have developed home training programs designed to work in conjunction with the GSR 2 . Thought Technology’s GSR 2 and other biofeedback devices have been integrated into the training programs of thousands of Olympic and professional athletes as a way to enhance performance and rehabilitation.

Today, Thought Technology designs, manufactures and markets a full line of biofeedback equipment—from sophisticated, multi- channel computer-based systems to portable stand-alone devices for muscle assessment and re-education, psychological monitoring and training.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT — Our Continuing Commitment

To ensure that Thought Technology’s history of innovation continues, we dedicate over 20% of our annual sales revenue toward R&D, employing engineers, programmers and technicians. While our primary focus is the creation of products that fill a need in the marketplace, we also devote a substantial portion of those resources to improving existing products in order to keep pace with the latest research and technology as it becomes available. In addition, we sponsor and assist in the design of various research projects encompassing a wide array of clinical applications, simultaneously helping people and obtaining valuable clinical feedback that further contributes to the development and improvement of our products.

PRODUCTION — Setting the Bar High...Then Clearing It!

No matter how well-conceived our designs are, ultimately they’re only as good as our manufacturing processes. That’s why we’ve made a significant investment in our production facilities over the past several years. These actions, accompanied by our own dedication, have enabled us to achieve quality standards that meet the levels set by ISO9001, its European Union counterpart EN46001 and all USA FDA QSR standards... in every operational phase.

Our design and manufacturing resources and expertise are available to other companies for private labelling.

We’ve also established facilities in both the United States and Canada, allowing us to bring products to market faster and service the ones that are currently in use more effectively. The result of this effort has been to provide our customers with a higher level of quality.

SALES & MARKETING — Providing The Tools That Make A Difference

We’ve made a long term commitment to provide the highest quality biofeedback to a wide array of clinicians—psychologists, psychiatrists, physical therapists, primary care physicians, urologists and OB/Gyns. Because we believe that this rapidly growing field promises to become a mainstay of medicine in the 21st century—similar to the role played by surgery and pharmaceuticals in the 19th and 20th centuries—we’ve dedicated ourselves to shaping the course of that growth through education, effective marketing and impeccable service.

Toward this end, we sponsor numerous seminars and workshops on electromyography, EEG and the other modalities in the treatment of conditions such as incontinence and rehabilitation. Working with leading clinicians, we’ve developed a series of training protocols, as well as other instructional materials to help facilitate the use of our instrumentation. We’re also the founding corporate member of the Biofeedback Foundation of Europe, an association of clinicians and researchers dedicated to disseminating information on biofeedback and its many applications throughout Europe and the Eastern Hemispere, which Thought Technology helped establish in 1997.

Our products are sold through a worldwide distribution network of dealers and retailers in over 80 countries.

WHAT’s NEXT? — A Hand In the Present, An Eye Toward the Future

In anticipation of future needs, Thought Technology is currently developing several new products. Whether it’s a dual-channel EMG designed to aid in the treatment of incontinence, a telemetry device able to send data to a PC or more home training products, Thought Technology will continue to lead the way to the future with a full line of advanced instruments.

It’s all part of what’s made Thought Technology a leader: innovation, a relentless pursuit of quality and, most importantly, a dedication to improving quality of life.
