Second to Disneyland, few companies have such a rich history of innovation and longevity in Anaheim as Mettler Electronics. Founded in 1957 by engineer and inventor Hal Mettler, the firm is the world leader in portable ultrasound and electro-stimulation therapy equipment used in chiropractic, physical therapy, and sports medicine.

Hal Mettler introduced his company and groundbreaking Sonicator® 700 in June 1957, at an unheard of price: $199.50. Being affordable and portable, it revolutionized ultrasound therapy, making it available to a wide range of therapists and patients. With the new Sonicator, therapists could easily move the machine to reach any patient requiring therapy. It was an engineering breakthrough in transistor radio technology.

Following the success of the Sonicator, a rapid succession of Mettler product innovations followed, including AutoTherm® Shortwave Diathermy, Cavitator® Ultrasonic Cleaners, and portable Muscle Stimulators. In total, Hal Mettler got fifteen patents for his ideas.

After Hal died, the firm continued to maintain his commitment to innovation. Mettler Electronics engineering group continued to update and improve the products while maintaining an active new product development program. The result is a state-of-the-art product line - with microprocessors replacing the original tube and transistor circuits for enhanced performance and reliability.

Success breeds imitation in any industry, and the portable ultrasound business is not an exception. Even though Mettler Electronics faces stiff competition from dozens of domestic and international competitors, the family firm remains the world leader in the industry it spawned. Currently, Mettler Electronics sells 60% of the ultrasounds in the world. According to Stephen Mettler, Hal’s son, the reason that customer loyalty is so high is that ” the customers know that Mettler products represent quality and value. When they buy a Mettler Sonicator or SysStim®, they know they are buying a product that is ‘sure to work’ for years to come.”.
