LONE TREE, Colo., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynex (OTCQB: ZYXI), an innovative medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and sale of non-invasive medical devices for pain management, stroke rehabilitation, cardiac monitoring and neurological diagnostics, announced today May orders for the electrotherapy product line.
Thomas Sandgaard, Founder and CEO of Zynex said: "May orders came in at 2,365, more than 2.5 times the amount of orders we received in May of last year, however a decline of 7% compared to orders of 2,556 in April 2016. Our biggest obstacle for increasing orders right now is limited liquidity that impacts our ability to manufacture enough products to fill the growth in patient and sales rep demo orders. Once we get past that hurdle, the many new sales reps we added a few months ago will be able to demonstrate our NexWave device to their book of existing accounts and grow orders even more. In June of last year we received 930 orders and we expect come in two to three times that level in this coming month."
Zynex, founded in 1996, markets and sells its own design of electrotherapy medical devices used for pain management and rehabilitation; and the company's proprietary NeuroMove device designed to help recovery of stroke and spinal cord injury patients. Zynex is also developing a new blood volume monitor for use in hospitals and surgery centers. For additional information, please visit: Zynex.com.
