MedTech veteran becomes first US Board member of BIOMODEX

BIOMODEX, a provider of 3D printed anatomical models for medical training purposes, has announced the appointment of MedTech veteran Rich Ferrari as the company’s first US board member.

Over his 40-year career, Ferrari has founded six companies, two of which he took public as CEO. Included in his portfolio is DeNovo Ventures, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm he co-founded, alongside CardioThoracic Systems (CTS), reportedly the fastest-growing start-up to an IPO in the medical device sector. 

Ferrari is also active on the boards of several MedTech and medical device companies, as well as a faculty member of the Stanford Biodesign Emerging Entrepreneurs Forum

“I believe Biomodex could be one of the core leaders in advanced physician training, teaching and simulation of complex medical procedures,” said Rich Ferrari, Biomodex Board of Directors. “They are not only reconstructing an image into a 3D model, they are replicating the human performance of that anatomy in a model, simulating the touch and feel or haptic feedback of the same human anatomy.

“The possibilities this presents for physician training and case planning is truly incredible.”
