This innovative startup company joined the Temple Health and Bioscience District (THBD) facility at the beginning of 2017 and has reached many major milestones during its time in our incubator.
SiMMo3D is a Texas-based medical company that produces synthetic organ models generated from imaging data to create medical device implantation trainers. Their hands-on surgical skills trainer, SimuBoard, improves the proficiency, outcome, and adoption rate for medical devices. SiMMo3D is focused on resolving improper medical device implantation and alleviating difficulties that medical device companies face in gaining a larger adoption rate for their devices. SimuBoard Medical Device Implantation Trainers currently include the Transseptal Puncture Trainer and the Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) Occlusion Trainer.
While current training solutions are cost prohibitive, time intensive, wasteful and lack quantifiable data, SiMMo3D’s products offer an interactive learning experience with anatomical accuracy and valuable training data. The SiMMo3D team includes Co-Founder and CEO Ryan Quinn and Co-Founder and CTO Colin Dodson.
Ryan graduated from UTSA with a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship. After graduation, he won the San Antonio Center for Innovative Technology Entrepreneurship (CITE) competition for his company, V.I. Solutions. Through CITE, Ryan discovered a passion for working in the biomedical industry and 3D printing. Soon afterward in 2016, he founded SiMMo3D.
Colin is involved in the strategic development of the company’s core technology. He graduated from Texas A&M University as a Research Scholar with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. Colin joined SiMMo3D to pursue his entrepreneurial interests and uses his knowledge of medical devices to create better training models for the medical community.
In addition to their cutting-edge technology, this dynamic duo brings life and excitement into THBD. We can always count on Ryan and Colin for a good laugh or story. Each tenant at THBD brings a unique personality into the working environment, which is what makes our facility such a great place to create and collaborate.
