With an extensive background in developing technology and applications, as well as efficiency-focused operations and commercialization of medical products, Tompkins is qualified to lead Stimwave’s U.S. sales efforts for its Wireless Pain Relief alternative to opioids pain management solution. Tompkins will lead an augmented sales team tasked with bringing Stimwave’s wireless pain relief system to the more than 400 million patients worldwide who suffer from chronic pain.
Tompkins has more than 20 years of experience in the medical device field and has expertise in driving market adoption of new and disruptive technologies, increasing sales and profitability through the recruitment and development of talent, building KOL relationships, directing cross functional teams, and growing international business. He was most recently vice president of sales at Interrad Medical for three years. Prior to that role, Tompkins worked as vice president of sales for St. Jude Medical Inc. for eight years and at Entero Medics as executive director for a year and a half. Tompkins received his bachelor of science degree in management from St. John’s University.
“We are thrilled to have Pat on board. He’s an expert in the field, and under his leadership Stimwave is position to continue to build a direct sales network to support the demand for Stimwave nationwide from chronic pain sufferers who need it the most,” said Laura Perryman, founder and CEO of Stimwave.
Stimwave’s devices use Wireless Pain Relief technology and are 95 percent smaller than any other neuromodulation device on the market. The device delivers small pulses of energy to specific nerves, triggering a reaction that enables the brain to remap pain pathways, thus providing pain relief.
Stimwave launched its U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared devices for the relief of chronic back and leg pain to a limited number of patients throughout 2015. In March 2016, Stimwave was granted FDA 510(k) clearance for the relief of peripheral nervous system (PNS) pain, becoming the only neuromodulation device manufacturer cleared by the agency to help reduce chronic neuropathic pain at most locations throughout the body, from back and leg pain addressed by spinal cord stimulation to PNS treatment for shoulder pain, wrist and elbow pain, knee pain, hip pain and more.
Stimwave Technologies is a privately held company that develops, manufactures, and commercializes wirelessly powered, microtechnology neurostimulators, providing patients with a convenient, safe, minimally invasive, and cost-effective pain management solution that is incorporated into their daily lives. Stimwave’s goal is to evolve its patented, cutting-edge platform into the default for neuromodulation, increasing the accessibility for patients worldwide while lowering the economic impact of pain management.
