Peter joined our Interactive Motion Technologies family in 2010 and has been a steadfast force ever since. He loved this work. Peter was a dynamic member of the sales team, and though he was semi-retired, he remained extremely active in promoting robotic rehabilitation to anyone who would listen. He firmly believed in the value of this novel approach to rehabilitation and wanted to make it available to people everywhere, never hesitating to jump on a plane or driving endless miles for a chance to share his excitement about InMotion Robots. Peter took on major projects and eagerly advancing everything he did. He was full of ideas, embraced the latest technology and tools in his work, and was always learning.
I cannot express in words my admiration of Peter’s enthusiasm, dedication, and passion and we are honored to have had him as part of the InMotion family for this short 5-year span. We are also grateful to his devoted wife, Janet, for lending him to us during his golden retirement years.
Peter attended Iowa State University where he worked closely with Dr. James Van Allen and Dr. E. F. Lindquist. He subsequently received his M.B.A. from Adelphi University in NY. He became involved in the area of Physical Medicine as an independent distributor by introducing Dynawave HVG to California 1978, and pioneering the use of HVG for wound healing, pain control and muscle stimulation. Through the years he added original “Russian Stimulation”, Interferential Stimulation, Micro Current and “Cold Laser”, isokinetic exercise, NeuroCom Balance and Vestibular rehabilitation devices, Liquid Chrystal and Electronic Thermography and Mc Manis adjustment and therapy tables to his distribution portfolio. He also produced continuing education courses for wound care, electro therapy, falls in the elderly, vestibular rehabilitation and balance retraining, pain control, manual therapy.
Peter lived in San Diego, CA and leaves his wife Janet, 3 children and 8 grandchildren.
In this difficult time, our hearts go out to Peter’s devoted wife and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Even a loss one anticipates can be a disorienting blow, but an unexpected one is certainly extremely difficult.
I join you in mourning Peter’s loss and cherishing his memory.
I already miss my “Iowa” connection.
