Apnicure is a Calif.-based medical device company focused on developing and commercializing novel home-use devices incorporating a proprietary platform technology called Oral Pressure Therapy (OPT) for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and other sleep related disorders.
As a part of the Apnicure R&D team, I designed next generation solutions for the Winx System.
Utilizing my surface modeling and product development skills, we designed, prototyped, ran verification testing, and brought new designs in clinical trial.
