One group from the Biomedical Engineering Senior Design class competed in the Senior Design Competition at the Northeast Bioengineering Conference at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY on Friday, April 1st. The students, Kayla Cloutier, Nicholas Milton, Filip Miletic, and Chelsea Vendetti (not shown) presented their senior design project alongside 57 teams from 17 different colleges in the northeast, and were judged by industry representatives. Their project, ‘Articulation: A New Innovation to Clip Appliers’ is in cooperation with Covidien. The purpose of the student’s project is to design the distal end of Covidien’s minimally invasive surgery tool, the Articulating Clip Applier.
