Schmitt, senior engineer for the Wedemark, Germany-based audio products company (Sennheiser USA is based in Old Lyme, Conn.), was struck by a hit-and-run driver April 25 while attending the National Association of Broadcasters convention there.

He has had surgeries on his legs and shoulder and is in critical but stable condition, said a spokeswoman.
