Moticon, manufacturer of professional measuring systems for the analysis of foot dynamics, is strengthening its personnel in three important areas. With the appointment of Jan-Fabian Meis as the new production manager, the company wants to meet the increasing demand for its Moticon sensor insoles. As Project Manager Clinical Research, Nicole Y.C Yu will plan, coordinate and support international clinical research projects. The company actively supports its customers in the development of new applications for the Moticon SCIENCE sensor soles. Henning Steiner will intensify the distribution of the new Moticon ORTHO solution with immediate effect and will be the first point of contact for sports orthopaedists, physiotherapists and orthopaedic shoe technicians.
New production manager
The new Production Manager Jan-Fabian Meis (31) brings his practical experience gained as Chief Engineer and Head of Production Management and Logistics at the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich to the expansion of the production capacity of Moticon sensor insoles. He completed his university studies in mechanical engineering as well as technology and management oriented business administration with a diploma thesis at the Technical University of Munich and the University of Cambridge. He then wrote his dissertation on production-side requirements management as a research assistant at iwb in cooperation with MAN Truck & Bus AG.
Internationalization for clinical research
The Australian Dr. Nicole Y.C Yu (31), Project Manager Clinical Research, assumes a central hinge function in supporting the applications of Moticon SCIENCE enterprise solutions. She is the first point of contact for scientists conducting clinical trials. She earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering (Biomedical) from the University of Sydney in clinical practice at Westmead Children’s Hospital Sydney. Yu’s scientific career has also taken her to the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of Queensland and most recently as a Research Fellow at the University of New South Wales, Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. Here, the award-winning scientist led projects in the field of stem cell research for the development of new implants for wound healing.
Specialist for orthopaedic technology
Henning Steiner (39) is taking over the distribution of the new sensor insole product line Moticon ORTHO with immediate effect and is thus available to treating physicians, orthopaedic technicians, medical supply stores, but also to the specialist trade for sports shoes and orthopaedic shoe technology. He is responsible for the overall sales of Moticon ORTHO. Before joining Moticon, he was district manager at Uniprox GmbH & Co KG, where he was responsible for sales and medical care. Prior to that, he worked for almost ten years as “Department Manager Back and Foot Analysis Centre” at Paul Samberger GmbH, a full-service provider in the fields of orthopaedics and rehabilitation technology as well as homecare. Here Steiner also gained experience in back and running analysis. He also successfully established networks with doctors, therapists and associations. The graduate sports scientist and holder of the A-license in the field of fitness also gained experience as a back trainer by working part-time at the Vitalis health centre in Munich.
“Due to the increased demand and the high potential of our professional measuring systems for the analysis of foot dynamics, we wanted to strengthen our sales and production team”, says Dr. Ing. Maximilian Müller, CEO of Moticon GmbH. “With the new employees and newly created positions, we will be able to provide all our customers in research, medicine, physiotherapy and sport with much better service in the future. We want to grow in the future and are always on the lookout for new employees”.
