Rhona Sinclair, Engineer

Rhona Sinclair
Consultant

Rhona is part of the mechanical engineering team where she applies her mechanical design and analytical skills across various client projects.

“The design and development of medical products is fraught with challenges but that’s what makes it so appealing. I have found that my skills can be used throughout many stages of the development process and it’s this variety that I love. Team’s willingness to allow me to explore new areas of interest and increase my skills and knowledge base while still maintaining my core role has been one of the highlights of working here.

The focus on heavily involving the needs of both the client and the end-user is increasingly important when attempting to find a solution that is not only mechanically elegant but that genuinely makes a difference to the patient.”

Rhona has recently been involved in the design, development and analysis of orthopaedic devices through various research projects with Stryker Osteosynthesis and a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Finsbury Orthopaedics Ltd. She has a degree in Product Design Engineering from the University of Glasgow and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Brunel University.
