Dick Moberg, Founder and CEO
Dick has been a leading force in the neurological monitoring industry for over 30 years. As a recent engineering graduate in the 1970's, Dick worked for a neurosurgeon, performing intraoperative neurological monitoring as well as research on neurological injury. This background and the chance meeting of Gary Trapuzzano, current VP of Engineering and Manufacturing, led to the development of the first low-cost EEG and evoked potentials monitor, the Neurotrac, in 1982. Over subsequent years, Dick formed two successive start-up companies that developed next-generation neurological monitoring products, the latest being Moberg ICU Solutions. These developments were funded through sales of research systems, profits, and grants from the National Institutes of Health as well as the Department of Defense. Dick continues his activities in developing future technology in neuromonitoring and informatics. He speaks frequently at scientific events, collaborates with multiple universities and industry partners, and is the author of several book chapters on this new topic.
Gary Trapuzzano, Vice President of Engineering and Manufacturing
Gary joined Moberg ICU Solutions in 2001 to lead the engineering group, thus re-creating the partnership that led to the development of the original Neurotrac. His extensive range of skills and experience has been key to the successful development of our multimodal neuromonitoring platform. Gary was instrumental in obtaining CE mark and FDA clearances for Moberg ICU Solutions' EEG and multimodal neuromonitor, the Component Neuromonitoring System (CNS Monitor). In addition to developing the original Neurotrac with Dick in the early 1980's, he also designed systems for ECG and cardiac Doppler ultrasound while at Interspec (the start-up company where he and Dick Moberg met). Gary also worked for GE Aerospace and, for twelve years, led the engineering team at ENSONIQ Corp. As one of ENSONIQ's early employees, Gary's engineering acumen and leadership was instrumental in the growth of ENSONIQ from a start-up company to a worldwide leader in electronic music technology.
