124 – Former athlete solving sports injuries with MedTech; Solushin, Ben Lindsay
Why are athletes still waiting 250 days for an injury to heal?
Ben Lindsay is a multi-award-winning biomedical engineer and co-inventor of the Solushin medical device. In addition to his work in biomedical engineering, at 18 years old, Ben became a national medalist in the 50m Butterfly. He is also a sufferer of medial tibial stress syndrome. Ben has a strong background in guiding researchers through commercialisation in the INCUBATE accelerator at the University of Sydney.
Solushin was developed as an adjunct to take what does work (rest and slow improvement over time) and make it quicker. Solushin is the first clinically validated medical device to treat medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) and improve ankle range of motion.
In this episode of Talking HealthTech, we sit down with Ben Lindsay from Solushin. Ben and I discuss that journey of bringing a MedTech product to market in Australia, and we’ll learn a bit more about his story as a professional swimmer.
If you are interested in learning more about treating sports injuries, this episode is for you. Ben shares his journey from sports to health tech with us. Learn how an innovative device can change the way shin splints heal. Ben also shares tips on commercialising innovations for early-stage developers.
