Do you want your internship to have a positive impact on our healthcare system and not end up in some drawer?

SLAM ORTHO develops sensor technology to support trauma surgeons (our company was founded by one) while operating on patients with fractures, i.e., osteosynthesis procedures. For these procedures it is important they place the right length screw implant. Currently, this is a separate measurement step that is often inaccurate, resulting in the wrong implant being selected. For example, patients with broken wrists have a 10% chance to experience complications after a procedure. The innovative sensor technology of SLAM Ortho gathers data during the drilling in bone and immediately informs the trauma surgeons of the correct needed implant length. This means shorter OR durations, improved surgeon workflow and better patient outcomes.

In the second quarter of 2023 (between April – June), SLAM Ortho will perform the first in-patient study together with two large hospitals in Delft and Rotterdam. Our sterile sensor technology will be used for the first time in the real world, and this is where technical innovation really meets the clinic.

WHAT WILL YOU DO

We are looking for a Clinical Technology intern to support setting up and executing this study. You will be actively involved in transferring technical innovation to actual use of novel devices the OR. You will be involved in:

- Creating a deep understanding of how surgeons operate and assess what types of surgeries and instruments need to be compatible with our device

- Supporting the development team with fully understanding the hospital logistics and integrating the device so it fits the logistics / sterilization cycle and can be used on the OR

- Training surgeons in using the device

- Observing procedures with the device to see if everything runs smooth and assisting if needed

- Performing surveys, gathering data for the study and translate the requirements of the OR-teams back to the engineers so the technology can be improved

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

- BSc./MSc. student in Clinical Technology

- Combination of an academic mindset with a hands-on mentality

- Self-reliant and driven personality that takes the initiative

- Likes to work full-time on this project

WHAT WE OFFER

A challenging project with a lot of responsibility and a monthly compensation. You will work in our office in the YES!Delft incubator and experience what it is to work in a startup. We are an ambitious and diverse team with experience in the medical field, engineering and data analytics. As a student you will be part of the team and will be actively supported in your skills- and personal development. Besides work we also have Friday drinks (on us) and team activities.

Ons doel is om chirurgen te ondersteunen tijdens het opereren met slimme nieuwe technologie, waarmee zij de patiënten de beste zorg kunnen geven.
De focus van SLAM Ortho ligt op de operaties waar botbreuken behandeld worden. Wij zijn een sensorsysteem aan het ontwikkelen wat de chirurg helpt de optimale implantaten te plaatsen.
Dit systeem is nog in ontwikkeling in samenwerking met de toekomstige gebruikers in het ziekenhuis, en jij kan ons helpen om de zorg van morgen nog beter te maken!
