A joint project: Grads new technology to assist surgeons

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

When Armen Bakirtzian was a fourth-year mechatronics engineering student at the University Waterloo, he began work on a tool that would help orthopedic surgeons like his own father align joints more accurately. 
Bakirtzian and his fellow classmates, Richard Fanson and Andre Hladio, wanted to design technology that would avoid misalignment which leads to pain and more surgery for patients. Upon graduation, the three launched Avenir Medical Inc. and now the technology they created, PelvAssistTM, will be in the hands of a select group of surgeons next year.
