“We began selling NeuroGym in 2016 and quickly saw the outcomes matched the promise for our customers,” said Brian Garner, director of Therapy & Rehab at Medline. “We jumped at the chance to fully own the technology and future strategy and growth of the line. NeuroGym has been a very impactful innovation to the therapy and rehab providers working with our company.”

This is a great fit for both companies and the beginning of even more innovation possibilities.”
