Esurgi seeks a hardware engineering intern to help with R&D, Prototyping, and Piloting of advanced biofeedback physical therapy and sports medicine instruments. Interns will gain in-industry experience, hone their engineering skills, and build medical devices that transform the healthcare industry. This is an unpaid internship.
Why This Role
This position is ideal for college students and candidates who want to increase their background in bio-health technology product development. You will learn from more senior professionals, and transfer your theoretical knowledge to practical experience. By the end of your internship, you will have multiple success stories to share with potential employers
Main Areas of Responsibility
- Engineering digital biofeedback sports medicine devices.
- Engineering of Biostabilizer an advanced pressure biofeedback unit to help patients relearn to use core muscles for spinal segmental stabilization: The engineer will support the device during the pilot and implement proposed changes.
- Product development and rapid prototyping of Joint Spy: an ACL biomechanics measurement and biofeedback unit. Develop the methodology to measure angles in real sports.
- Research components with similar functions to identify how others have built similar hardware projects; and use these as a springboard to become familiar with technologies. Then, develop your own unique approach to solve the specific problem.
- Develop, document, and test modules and devices.
- Pursuing or have a degree in or have knowledge in Bio-Medical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical/Electronics Engineering, or a related field.
- Experience completing complex product development projects quickly and successfully.
- Ability to research technical materials and projects and implement them.
- Rapid Prototyping
- Electronics and Circuit Design
- 3-D Modeling and Printing
- Knowledge of or experience with signal processing and microcontrollers is helpful
- Discrete Mathematics
- Biomedical experience
The internship can be completed for college credit, OPT, CPT, or co-op credit.
Esurgi is a bio-health technology product early-stage. We have projects including physical medicine and rehabilitation/physical therapy and medication reconciliation. Our leaders have developed and built successful technology companies, including one of Fortune Magazine's World's Most Admired Companies and Forbes Fast Tech 25, and have a medical research background in institutions such as UCLA.
About our Internships
An archetypical internship at Esurgi is essentially a special project in the work setting. The interns will be assigned a mentor with an executive background. The intern and the mentor will develop an internship plan. This will be based on the intern educational background, career goals, and realistic (preferably interdisciplinary / team) projects within the Esurgi sphere. The plan includes objectives, success factors, and deliverables. The intern and mentor will meet regularly to review the progress and plan of the intern. Typical conversations: How would you measure this in that context? I am curious about why you did not suggest those approaches. Given these available data sources, what would be your approach to calculating that?
