PowerDot 2.0 Smart Muscle Stimulator Questions & Answers

PowerDot 2.0 Smart Muscle Stimulator Q&As: With Eric Glader, CEO

We first spoke to PowerDot CEO, Eric Glader, in May 2018 about the brand’s revolutionary smart muscle stimulator. Since then it seems there’s been a heck of a lot going on with PowerDot.

They brought their second generation 2.0 device to the market, however what has really piqued our interest is the introduction of TENS capabilities to their muscle stimulator.

Recently we described this development as: “The smartest smart muscle stimulator in town turns your smartphone into the most portable TENS unit around”.

So much is happening at PowerDot that we felt we needed to get Eric back to tell us more about these exciting developments.

Q: For our readers who don’t know PowerDot, can you explain what and who PowerDot is?

Well… PowerDot as a brand is “the world’s first smart muscle stimulator” but to me we’re more than just that.

A quick 20 second overview of PowerDot 2.0:

Yes, we created a disruptive NMES/TENS device that completely innovated the idea of e-stim but to me PowerDot is a company aiming to tear down the four walls of the training room and give people access to the same therapy professional athletes and physicians have been using for decades.

We’re a medical grade, software first, data focused company who is aiming to fully disrupt the soft tissue therapy space.

Q: What has changed with PowerDot since our last Q&A? Any new features or software updates you’d like to highlight?

Since our last Q&A we launched our 2.0 device with some new exciting features.

The main addition to PowerDot is our Smart TENS program. A revolutionary new way to relieve your pain.

Since we are an FDA cleared medical device and wanted to innovate traditional TENS therapy we had to jump through a lot of hoops to perfect and approve our new TENS program. It’s here now and we’re really excited about it.

Second would be our long haul flight program. It’s our traditional massage program made specifically to promote inflight blood flow and circulation during long travel times.

This is an automated program that acts as your personal masseuse during your travels no matter what the duration is.

The main addition to PowerDot is our Smart TENS program. A revolutionary new way to relieve your pain.

Q: We just recently tried your new 2.0 device and really liked it. What are the main differences of the PowerDot 2.0 from the old 1.0?

With the 2.0 device we really overhauled the old packaging and made a more sleek high end package design. From the box to the carrying case to the pod itself.

We had a lot of feedback from our customers about difficulties with the electrode snaps so we upgraded to magnetic snaps that attach the pod and cables to the electrode pads.

This makes the setup process 3x faster and easier.

Another change is our proprietary symmetrical biphasic waveform which creates a more powerful yet pain-free muscle contraction.

Q: In regards to your new Smart TENS feature, how does this process work when creating your personalized program?

The journey begins by creating your specialized program within the app.

Simply select the area in pain, confirm the type of pain (chronic, acute, injury related, etc.), and set your pain score or tolerance.

Our proprietary algorithms take this information and create a specialized program designed to relieve the pain.

You are then able to track your individual pain score per body part over time.

Q: We see you guys promote financing options and a 30 day trial period a lot. Can you actually test out the device at home before paying? How does that work?

We’ve partnered with Affirm to provide financing options to our customers and it’s been a huge success.

If approved we’ve built a program that requires $0 down and no payment for the first 30 days.

We’re confident enough in our product and service that we offer this option with a 30 day money back guarantee.

All you do is choose the package you want and select Affirm at checkout to prequalify (Currently our financing options are only available in the US).

Q: Being that you are an app based device do your training sessions get interrupted when using another app or receiving a call?

PowerDot’s mobile app and firmware are designed to work independently from other apps running on your phone, including calls, so your training session isn’t impacted.

Our firmware is smart enough to independently complete and stop your stimulation session… even if the Bluetooth connection is lost between PowerDot and your phone/tablet.

While we can’t provide too much detail about the platform, what we can say is that The PowerDot MT platform, has been developed to create efficiency in soft tissue care, while vastly improving patient perceived level of care and closing the feedback loop to reduce waste for the payors.
