RPM Tech is excited to announce that Ed Belsinger has joined the RPM Tech team as Director of Product Development.
Ed completed his BS and MS in mechanical engineering at UMBC in 1993. At Ohmeda, he developed a number of infant incubator and radiant warmer products for the NICU including the Giraffe Omnibed, a revolutionary combination product that changed clinical practice and is still the market leader 20 years later. This is where he developed skills in convective and radiant heating as well as gathering and incorporating the voice of customer. He joined Becton Dickinson in 2006 and led several engineering teams in the development of molecular invitro diagnostic instrument systems including robotic pipetting and DNA amplification and optical detection. These systems require integration of mechanical, electrical, and software engineering as well as biology and chemistry. In 2013, Ed rejoined Ohmeda, now GE Healthcare as Chief Engineer, leading the technology roadmap, intellectual property management, and overall technical performance of all infant care and fetal monitoring products. He then took on the newly created systems engineering manager role and let the teams in Maryland and Bangalore, India. In 2017, Ed joined Breethe, a startup created by Dr Bartley Griffith, a heart/lung transplant surgeon at the UMB school of medicine. The mission was to create a portable artificial lung machine that could fully support the sickest patient and let healthier patients walk around and eventually go home. He helped build the product, team, and company that launched the product in Dec, 2020.
Ed lives in Forest Hill with his wife Melissa and two children, Brendan and Mariana. He enjoys restoring and hot rodding old cars, projects around the house, and anything that generates adrenalin.
