"Scientists study what is. Engineers create what has never been." Theodore Von Karman
Mr. Mathison graduated cum laude from California State Polytechnic University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. He is a former member of Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa Nu national engineering honor societies. He has over twenty five years of experience in the design, development and manufacturing of medical and industrial instrumentation. He is an acknowledged entrepreneur. He is an expert in the hardware and software design of computer and microprocessor based medical, industrial products.
Mr. Mathison is currently Chief Engineering Consultant at ProSoft Technology, Inc. and at IntraMedical Imaging, LLC. While consulting at ProSoft since 1993, Mr. Mathison has designed and developed many industrial automation products including the 4100, 4150, 5000, 6000 and PLX80 ProLinx® Communication Gateways. These devices are PC/104 bus, 386EX based and EP9302 based industrial protocol converters. While consulting at IMI, Mr. Mathison has helped design and develop the NodeSeeker® NS800 and NS900, portable Gamma Probe devices, and a revolutionary image radiation Gamma Camera. Both are medical devices used for the detection of small tumors during surgery and endo-surgery.
MedComm provides turn-key medical device product development. Micro-Log provides turn-key industrial automation product development. Before starting MedComm/Micro-Log, Mr. Mathison was most recently Director of Research and Development at CompuMed, Inc., a medical instrumentation and service company specializing in computerized electrocardiography and bone densitometry. While at CompuMed, Mr. Mathison led the design and development of the model 507 cardiograph, headed and helped pioneer the development of the Osteogram. The Osteogram makes use of the principles of Radiographic Absorptiometry. It is a computer generated, fast, accurate and inexpensive bone mineral density test. The Osteogram is used to detect, and monitor the treatment of, osteoporosis.
