Staffing
Name Discipline Role / Skills
Dr. Elizabeth DeBartolo Mechanical Engineering Faculty Guide: Will work closely with the team on an on-going basis to facilitate success.
Dr. Matt Marshall Industrial Engineering Faculty Consultant: Will provide biomechanics technical support on an intermittent basis. Will be used as a resource when expertise is needed in the ergonomics field.
Ed Hanzlik Mechanical Engineering Technical Assistant: Will provide technical assistance when needed during the course of the project. Mechanical engineering background will help during design and build phase.
Jeff Rebmann Industrial Engineering Project Manager: Previously taken Design Project Management and developed Project Readiness Package. Will have the responsibility of planning, executing, and leading the project team to the project's successful conclusion. Will ensure all key deliverables will be met and met on time. Serve as the point of contact for all group members and customer.
TBD Student Mechanical Engineering Along with another mechanical engineering student, will provide guidance and assistance during the design and build of any and all mechanical components. Will most likely be involved in the fabrication of machined spine components. Knowledge of advanced CAD software would be helpful during the design process. Will also provide assistance testing and product delivery. Opportunities to lead meetings and become an integral part of the project will be frequently available.

TBD Student Industrial Engineering Will act a the ergonomic and biomechanic point of contact during the design and build phases. In order to emulate real spinal motion, ergonomics application will be needed to ensure proper constraints. An interest in ergonomics would be preferred. Also will assist in the component design, build, and testing. Opportunities to lead meetings and become an integral part of the project will be frequently available.
TBD Student Electrical Engineering Will provide the expertise to successfully integrate electrical measuring devices needed to measure length and angle deviations of each spine segment. Also will assist in designing user feedback from the mechanical spine test platform. Knowledge will also be used for any unforeseen electrical issues that will arise. Also will assist in the component design and build when needed. Opportunities to lead meetings and become an integral part of the project will be frequently available.
