Zynex, Inc. Appoints President of Subsidiary, Zynex NeuroDiagnostic
Zynex, Inc. a provider of pain management systems and electrotherapy products for medical patients with functional disability, announced the hiring of James Miller as President of its wholly owned subsidiary, Zynex NeuroDiagnostic Inc.
Mr. Miller will be responsible for all activities of Zynex NeuroDiagnostic, which includes the development and marketing of neurological diagnosis devices to hospitals and clinics worldwide through the utilization of our diagnostic EMG (electromyography) technology. Our goal is for Zynex NeuroDiagnostic to become a primary worldwide neurological device provider for monitoring EMG, EEG, sleep pattern, auditory and nerve conductivity applications. We believe that this subsidiary will significantly contribute to our long-term growth and provide a platform for potential strategic acquisitions within the neurology monitoring industry.
Thomas Sandgaard, CEO of Zynex stated, “Since the creation of Zynex NeuroDiagnostic in April 2010, we have worked diligently to further develop and commercialize the Company’s proprietary EMG technology, which has been leveraged from our existing NeuroMove product. We believe the addition of Mr. Miller will allow us to more rapidly capitalize on the high growth global market opportunity that exists in this market space and help to establish Zynex as a premiere company delivering neurological diagnosis products. I believe that Mr. Miller’s extensive medical device experience and exemplary personal attributes will serve us well in leading Zynex through our next exciting growth phase. Our long-term goal is to have this subsidiary contribute significantly to the revenue and profit already being generated in Zynex Medical with our line of electrotherapy products.”
Mr. Miller has over 30 years of executive management experience in the global healthcare market with specific expertise in neurostimulation, ultrasound imaging, infusion therapy and point-of-care diagnostics. Mr. Miller has a proven track record of growing early stage businesses and has been responsible for managing all aspects of an organization, including research and development, worldwide marketing and sales, strategic alliances, corporate partnerships and acquisitions. Mr. Miller recently served as President of Otomedicine, as well as President of Boston Scientific’s auditory division and President of Cochlear Corporation. His experiences also include Senior Executive positions with companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Procter and Gamble, Diametrics Corp., IMED Corp and Advanced Technology Laboratories. Mr. Miller holds a BA in Chemistry from the University of Denver.
