The power of an individual inventor and the positive effect such a person can have for large portions of the world has been an integral part of scientific progress for centuries. Individuals working on impactful ideas have spurred entire revolutions in the ways in which we treat illness, utilize resources, and power the economy. In order to better understand this effect, we’ve turned to the case of LifeWave and its founder David Schmidt. Thanks to a history of innovation spurred on by the CEO, the company has emerged as a leader in the health and wellness field. Read on for a look at how LifeWave has accomplished that progress through a reliance on invention.
In order to see the impact LifeWave has had on the health and wellness industry, let’s first take a look at the roots of LifeWave and how innovation has factored into its creation. David Schmidt founded the company following a career centered on business and product development. This work often saw him developing novel creations such as unique ways to produce basic elements, new designs for bladeless turbines, and an innovative combustion rocket engine. That work eventually helped him land on the radar of the US Navy, which asked him to collaborate on an issue crew members faced in a new class of of mini-submarines. That work, which focused on methods for stimulated energy levels in navy personnel, helped lead the inventor to create his own product at his own company: the Energy Enhancer Patch.
This patch utilizes the power of specific, reflected wavelengths of light to stimulate energy production in the user’s body. This energy production is accomplished without the use of potentially harmful pharmaceuticals and has, among other things, been reported to aid in athletic endeavors. That last point is a salient one as it helped the patches fall into usage among the members of Stanford University women’s swim team when the patches were first becoming known in 2004. After many members of the team set personal records while using the patches, the team brought them to their Olympic trials. That helped bring the technology to national exposure and helped continue the company along its road to success.
That first bit of national exposure is an example that helps illustrate the idea behind this piece. The patches, that helped the swim team and would later find an audience across the country (and eventually, the world), were conceived by a single inventor. Working diligently with concepts he accrued from his education, passion projects, and work in various industries, David Schmidt was able to create something with wide applicability that could benefit large groups of people. The ability to improve energy levels, stamina, and athletic performance without the use of drugs was something that was clearly appealing to large groups of people.
This simple example is also reminiscent of past inventors after whom the company’s CEO has modeled his aspirations. Perhaps most prominent in the CEO’s own life was Thomas Edison, whose work the company founder first encountered as a boy by visiting the Edison museum. Even at that early age, he recognized the power of Edison’s many inventions and the ways in which they had impacted the world. Indeed, to the boy, the inventor seemed to have made a drastic and long-lasting impact on the world at large. He left that museum experience with the goal of following in the inventor’s footsteps, helping to explain the path his career eventually took.
Process of innovation
Of course, the Energy Enhancer Patch isn’t the only product offered by the company, so it’s clear the CEO didn’t stop at a single invention. Indeed, it’s a rare occurrence for an inventor to produce just one creation and then stop. So, to again understand how inventors are continuing to shape the world in which we live, let’s look at how the company continues to innovate new ideas beyond the original product for which it first became known.
This process of continuous innovation takes place, in part, through the company’s labs and testing facilities. In-house testing is conducted on all products to ensure that offerings are evidence-based and provide measurable results. This, again, is an important part of the inventing process. By collecting actionable data through research and studies, the company is able to support for-ward progress in a scientific and methodical process. This process not only lends itself to creating offerings that can make a real difference in people’s lives, it also helps researchers at the company identify avenues for future product innovation.
The latest way in which that ongoing push towards innovation has manifested is through the new X39 patch offered by LifeWave. The patch is designed to elevate copper peptide, which has been shown to activate stem cell activity. That increase in activity allows stem cells to have a number of beneficial effects on the health and wellbeing of individual users. This includes pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved wound healing, and more.
Though just one example, the X39 patch illustrates how the company is continuing onward with its legacy of innovation intact. That, in itself, is another impact of a determined inventor and his or her decision to start a company. When a company begins as a result of the creation of a new piece of technology, this drive to create can become a part of the company’s overall identity. As this identity matures over time it can help the company produce more offerings that can benefit consumers in a number of new and unique ways.
Scientific progress has often rested on the power of individuals working diligently to create for-ward movement in their respective fields of expertise. These individuals have come in all shapes and sizes but they are often inventors of one kind or another — innovators drawn to creating new advancements in science or technology. Though, to some, this concept of forward progress may seem hard to find in the modern world, our above overview shows that ingenuity it is very much alive and kicking. The actions of the world’s current generation of inventors, such as the CEO of LifeWave, help to illustrate this fact.
