- Achuta Kadambi, assistant professor ot the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering
This week, Liane Teplitsky, Worldwide VP/GM Technology & Data Solutions at Zimmer Biomet, shares her excitement for the burgeoning data business emerging in orthopedics. Teplitsky, an engineer who built her medtech career in the cardiac R&D and sales at St. Jude and Abbott, walks us through the interconnected offerings of the company’s ZBEdge™ suite of digital and robotics technologies.
We also speak with Achuta Kadambi, assistant professor ot the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, about a column he contributed to Science suggesting physics may be causing medical devices to perform at varying levels in people of different races. Kadambi explains his own work in the field and suggests how medical device developers may want to move forward in the future.
