SomniResonance®, formed in 2010, is a medical technology company focusing on the design, development, and the commercialization of proprietary electrotherapeutic technologies for the treatment of diseases and pathological conditions. The management team has over 100 combined years of experience in the medical and healthcare fields.
SomniResonance® is on mission to integrate new paradigms of medical therapeutics for the reduction of human suffering.
Our vision is to provide a safe, effective, affordable alternative to pharmaceutical treatments for sleep disorders with electrotherapeutic technologies.
Dr. Lawrie has had a long career in in the research, design and development of frequency specific bioelectromagnetic technologies for the treatment of neurological conditions.
In 1992, he founded Energy Medicine Developments (EMD), launching a concerted effort to develop, research, and ultimately market innovative electromagnetic therapies for neurologically based disorders. Dr. Lawrie obtained regulatory approval to market the EnerMed Therapy for the treatment of symptoms of multiple sclerosis and migraine in Canada (License 22473) and supervised the Company’s European representatives and manufacturers in their successful effort to obtain the CE mark for distribution in Europe (CE 59470). Under his leadership EMD obtained nine Institutional Review Board (IRB) approvals for clinical studies investigating the effects of a pulsed electromagnetic field generator on symptoms of multiple sclerosis, migraine and Parkinson’s disease. The Company’s research was supported by $600,000 in grants from the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America.
Dr. Lawrie has developed proprietary electromagnetic patterns for use in the treatment of a number of medical conditions. He is experienced in the design and management of clinical research. He has been Co-Investigator and Treatment Consultant in nine IRB approved Clinical Studies investigating the effects of extremely low frequency (ELF) pulsed electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF) on the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, migraine and Parkinson’s disease.
He is a life member of the International Society for Bioelectromagnetism.
