The Innovators: Daniel Stein

As has become The Business Journal’s custom during the month of May, designated as National Small Business Month, we ask readers to tell us who is worthy of recognition. This time, we asked readers to nominate innovators – the risk takers, out-of-box thinkers and the status quo challengers.

Daniel Stein, PT, DPT, ATC
Founder, Thera Logics

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Eccentric muscle exercises are the best way to rebuild strength after an athletic injury or surgery but can only be done in clinics on expensive, bulky equipment.

This is why Daniel Stein founded Thera Logics, maker of Brace Eccentrics – a portable device (currently in development) that will enable this rehab to be done at home.

Once completed, this device will be life changing for those recovering from hamstring and ACL injuries, will reduce risk of repeat injuries and will reduce costs related to repeat ACL and hamstring injuries (at least $1.25 billion per year in the United States).

Stein gave a top-notch pitch at the recent Youngstown Business Incubator Shark Tank event and continues to move his business forward.

He recently brought on a biomedical engineer to diversify his team. He is a relentless entrepreneur with industry experience and the drive to ensure success for Thera Logics.

Nominated by Chandler Fiffick.
