chris-kiblerBIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

Mr. Kibler received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology with a specialization in bioinstrumentation. Mr. Kibler’s education and background include a strong foundation in mechatronics, electromechanical design, research and development, biomedical design, CAD modeling, software development, instrumentation and sensor design, statistical analysis, biosignal processing, experimental design, and data collection. He contributes to Wolf’s product development programs in the areas of mechanical design, software programming, signal processing, and design for human factors.

During his time at Rose-Hulman, he focused on brain machine interface (BMI) and biosignaling, leading a student research project to develop a motorized wheelchair that could be controlled by a quadriplegic patient using information collected from an EEG in response to steady-state visual stimuli.

While working for CRI Medical Devices, Mr. Kibler gained experience in a manufacturing setting. His projects enabled him to verify and validate processes, using Minitab to analyze process capabilities. He also developed changes to current processes, and released a new product with a client, learning a great deal about quality controls and regulatory processes.
Mr. Kibler has helped design devices to analyze sports injuries, developed prosthetics, and analyzed a variety of biomechanical systems. With this knowledge, he investigates orthopedic and sports injuries, as well as brain, spine and soft tissue injuries, determining causation or analyzing the probability of injury in the reported incident. He also participates in product liability and product defect investigations.
