OrthoWorx announced today that Ball State University has joined the OrthoWorx University Industry Advisory Board, which was recently formed to better connect the technology and talent needs of Indiana’s orthopedic medical device industry with the assets and capabilities represented by Indiana’s higher education institutions. Students from many programs are preparing to address the needs of the orthopedic industry. Immersive learning prepares them to understand and solve complex problems quickly. The Indiana medical device industry is the largest component of the overall life sciences economy in Indiana. OrthoWorx was formed in 2009 to improve the environment for success for an industry cluster based in Warsaw that accounts for approximately 13,000 direct and indirect jobs, and contributes more than $3 billion in value annually to the Indiana economy.
