Alex Mathews named to Forbes ’30 Under 30′ list

Alex Mathews, at right, of the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering, was recently named to the annual Forbes “30 Under 30” list for his work on Fusiform with classmate Param Shah, at left.

The two were recognized in the Manufacturing and Industry category for their software-driven orthotics startup. Fusiform helps to create customizable and cost-effective orthotic devices that feature a revolutionary modular design.

Mathews said in an interview with the Hub that the project is “tackling a lot of inefficiencies in a process that hasn’t adapted since the 1970s.”
