Timothy Brooks Smith
Chairman and CEO
Think of the body as an elaborate machine, operating via a system of electronic impulses that transmit information. This is not a farfetched thought. Your neurons carry messages in the form of electrical signals called nerve impulses. To create a nerve impulse, your neurons must be stimulated. A nerve impulse can arise from experiencing physical catalysts such as sound and light, and it can be induced by chemical means. Pain can be seen as a message that is conveyed by nerve impulses. The default form of pain management is usually chemically based, however the principles of electricity show there are other effective methods to treat pain and discomfort. Timothy Brooks Smith, an Electrical Engineer, is a pioneer in the field of Medical Device Design that utilizes microcurrent biofeedback technology. Mr.Â Smith founded Avazzia in 2004 to design, manufacture, and distribute scientifically advanced, innovative FDA accepted healthcare products and software. He developed Biofeedback Electro-Stimulation Technology (BESTâ„¢) products to address contemporary healthcare concerns by especially emphasizing an electronic answer to the problem of pain. He is the Chairman and CEO of Avazzia Inc.
Based in Dallas, Texas, AVAZZIA takes pride in its engineering roots. The founding members have in excess of 200 man years of Texas Instruments experience combined. They have contributed to the design and development of integral components found in: Night vision and optoelectronics; Modern commercial aircraft; Military aircraft and the Space Shuttle; and all Telecom systems. Tim Smith is the founder and principal designer of AVAZZIA technology. One of his major accomplishments at Texas Instruments is his invention of the premier logic product line (Low Power Schottky) which is now an integral component for nearly every major computer system. For this, he received the Patrick E. Haggerty Innovation Award, Texas Instrument’s highest honor. Tim Smithâ€™s innovations touch the lives of billions of people around the world every day. Systems utilizing Timâ€™s inventions are in the Smithsonian, and can be found in all modern telecom systems, computers, the Space Shuttle, military fighters such as the F-14, F-15, the B1 and B2 bombers, and Boeing/Airbus airliners.
Tim Brooks Smith is an alumnus Southern Methodist University, where he obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering. His education in electrical engineering started some years before his college career. His father Brooks Smith began teaching him electronics when he was in the eighth grade. Together they built vacuum tube radios, a short wave radio, and a stereo set. By the time Tim was in the eleventh grade, he knew that he was going to be an electrical engineer. On earning his BSEE, Tim joined Texas Instruments and designed integrated circuit chips. Over the next 4 years, Tim balanced his work with TI during the day with night courses toward earning his MSEE. Between age 24 and 27, he managed the design team that developed the Integrated Circuit chips for the Poseidon and Minuteman Missiles, and designed the IC chips that landed the Apollo astronauts on the moon and brought them safely back home.
Today, the design and development of cutting-edge medical technology to address major healthcare concerns of the modern world is Timothy Brook Smithâ€™s primary pursuit in electronic engineering. The realization – that the use of subtle energy, with the correct signature, can influence physiologic mechanisms for tissue regeneration, pain abatement, and immune modulation in living organisms – fostered this new passion. The microcurrent Biofeedback technology used in the Avazzia Bestâ„¢ Pro 1 has been FDA cleared for pain management that results from chronic conditions, post operative pain, and post traumatic pain. Avazzia Bestâ„¢ devices are available for use by medical professionals and consumers for the treatment of pain. The new achievements Tim Smith realizes in this new endeavor are symptomatic of his core ability to listen to a customer describe a need and then developing a technology solution to address that need, which is in evidence throughout his career as an engineer.
