Alfred Mann Foundation’s expertise collectively held by our engineering and development team is unparalleled in the medical device field. Working in a not-for-profit environment allows them the freedom to undertake seemingly impossible, risk-intensive projects that might be too costly or too risky for profit-driven companies. Among our employees we have many with doctorates and other advanced degrees, military veterans, and people who hail from more than 20 foreign countries and, between them, speak more than a dozen languages. Our diversity of background paired with a combined hundreds of years of experience in biomedical, mechanical and electrical engineering, quality control, software design, patent law and clinical expertise put us in a unique position to solve some of the most challenging problems in medicine and bring these products to patients who will benefit from them the most.
