Frazier & Deeter’s Business Beat: Jeffrey Smith and Dan Dunn, OneDirect Health Network, T-Rex Rehab and Restore Metabolix
Entrepreneur Jeff Smith has a goal to change sick care to health care through his three companies: OneDirect Health Network, T-REX Rehab, and Restore Metabolix. He and CFO Dan Dunn joined host Roger Lusby on Business Beat, presented by Alpharetta CPA firm Frazier & Deeter.
Jeffrey Smith, CEO, OneDirect Health Network
Jeff founded Amendia, Inc., in 2008, a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive spinal surgical instruments and implants. From that experience, he learned that after surgery there is a definite gap in recovery and compliance if the patient does not have adequate support with physical therapy.
In 2014, Jeff founded OneDirect Network to provide post-operative care to veterans and workers comp patients. They take the T-REX rehab machines into the home to provide physical therapy to improve recovery and compliance.
With a desire to shift the focus to wellness care from sick care, he also founded Restore Metabolix to address preventative maintenance for individuals with insulin resistance.
Jeff is formerly a banker with Synovus Financial Corporation and is an entrepreneur at heart.

Total Range Exerciser system offers breakthrough technology for patients in need of physical therapy. T-Rex works by emulating the high intensity stretching applied by physical therapists. This stretching elongates and breaks down scar tissue, allowing for a greater range of motion to be achieved in a shorter amount of time.
T-Rex is delivered and set up in patients’ homes by a trained technician. The system monitors patient progress and compliance and it has stop guards and pain scales to keep patients safe.
With repeated high-intensity stretches, T-REX knee and shoulder units get results and achieve plastic deformation of scar tissue.
T-REX is now available with a Smart tablet allowing for all sorts of new capabilities. Their Smart Technology helps improve transparency and compliance through remote monitoring and gives physicians the option to video chat with their patients. It is also HIPAA compliant.
RestorMetabolix is a Physician-Directed Physiologic Insulin Resensitization therapy that provides a unique patented approach. Insulin is administered in an infusion that bio identically mimics insulin’s release as a hormone rather than a drug and targets the primary cause of diabetes: metabolic failure.
By utilizing insulin in a manner that bio-mimics normal physiology, the RestorMetabolix treatment is able to reduce insulin resistance which helps blood sugar more readily enter each cell and be converted into energy. Increasing cellular energy allows damaged tissues and organs to grow, repair, and regenerate. Thus, the RestorMetabolix approach not only stabilizes but in many instances has reversed complications of diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
The goal of this treatment program is to restore the natural communication between the pancreas and the liver, which ultimately helps patients find long-term relief from years of living with diabetes.
