PowerDot Origin Story
Although it officially launched in 2016, PowerDot saw innovation three years prior, when Alexey Pisarev worked on creating a portable electrical muscle stimulation device. Pisarev’s father was a groundbreaking innovator with NeuroMusclar Electric Sitmuation (NMES) technology, which has existed since the 1950s but only recently seen real progress. NMES devices have been proven to activate targeted muscle groups, promote recovery, and relieve pain, but they were not widely available to the public, and the ones that were, were either very inexpensive and dangerous or way too expensive for the average exerciser.
Pisarev teamed up with Eric Glader to pack the power of NMES in a small pod that connected with smartphones for athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike. They combined the traditional NMES with their Smart Recovery AI. With that innovation, PowerDot could provide customized programs based on a consumer’s needs, right to their smartphone. Today, thousands of weightlifters, cyclists, swimmers, runners, and athletes of all stripes use PowerDot to increase their performance, relieve pain, and rehab an injury.
