TS Medical is dedicated to the advancement of exercise and physical therapy solutions for a better quality of life. Born from years of experience as recognized physicians and medical device developers, TS Medical identified a need for next generation rehabilitation devices that can significantly improve overall blood circulation.
The company’s first product line, TS Pedal is deigned to guide foot and ankle exercises that may not only boost circulation but also increase strength and range of motion. Ultimately, it is hoped that the products can be clinically proven to enhance recovery after surgery, injury, or aggressive medical treatment like chemotherapy. In addition, TSM aims to prove therapeutic benefit for those with chronic conditions such as diabetes or chronic vascular insufficiency.
FitFoot, a consumer version of the TS Pedal is for consumer use and will soon be released to the market. It offers simple exercise regimens that can be performed by individuals with a wide range of strength and mobility.
A research Engineer is now needed to help develop this next generation of TS Pedal products. TS Medical is seeking grant funding (e.g. SBIR) to explore the device’s potential for clinical use and develop products that merit therapeutic claims. This will involve the integration of key features that are believed to drive the efficacy and usability of the product, as well as to reduce cost.
Generally, this individual would be expected to work in close collaboration with physician inventor and industrial design team to incorporate new features into the device, which are expected to work together synergistically to benefit patients.
Specific tasks will include:
- Modeling and prototyping
- Feasibility studies
- Design of experiments for proof of concept studies
- Design for manufacturing
- Pre-clinical builds
- Contribute to Intellectual property development
- Risk analysis and risk mitigation strategy
- Maintain design history file
- Engineering project management
In addition, this individual will be asked to assist in preparation of technical plans and budgets for grant applications.
A good fit for this position would be an individual who:
- Has prior experience as a lead investigator on at least one NIH or NSF grant
- Regularly publishes in the patent and/or peer-reviewed literature
- Has developed mechanical devices that have been used on human subjects
- Is familiar with the integration of simple electromechanical systems in medical devices
Company is based in McLean, VA but this position is remote with the individual preferably located in Columbus, Ohio.
