Medical Device Firm Supports Doctoral Students’ Research
June 8, 2022
Two Drexel University doctoral students are studying ways to improve a revolutionary ankle replacement implant patented by their professor.
María Ruiz and Jordan Stolle, both pursuing PhDs in mechanical engineering, are conducting research on the Kinos Axiom Total Ankle System, for which Sorin Siegler, PhD, professor of mechanical engineering at
Drexel’s College of Engineering, obtained a patent in 2018.
Their research is being supported by restor3d, a medical device company based in Durham, North Carolina, which merged with Kinos Medical, a startup launched to commercialize implants based on Siegler’s work.
