Bioengineer students win design competition

September 6, 2012

Clemson’s bio-engineering senior design team won the design competition of National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance for a novel chest tube anchoring device. The Clemson team included Brennen Jenkins of the Pickens County town of Liberty. The student team, under the direction of professor John DesJardins, partnered with Greenville Hospital System pediatric surgeons Dr. John Chandler and Dr. Robert Gates to develop the device. The AssureFit chest tube stabilization device is used to prevent surgical drains from dislodging following procedures, saving time and medical expense. The device allows for greater patient mobility and comfort.
