Mr. Devanney is a Biomechanist at ARCCA specializing in injury biomechanics, focusing on injury mechanisms and associated injury tolerances by analyzing the kinematics and kinetics of the human body during a specific event.
His scientific research has been concentrated on medical devices, specifically those related to hip arthroplasty. While at Rochester University, Mr. Devanney participated on a team of four in conjunction with Omnilife Science to develop a mechanical cutting guide to assist in the implantation of a revolutionary tissue-sparing hip implant.
This guide was designed for use during a total hip arthroplasty performed utilizing an anterior approach with zero disruption to team flow while decreasing implant failure from three percent to one percent. The product yielded a cut on the femoral neck at the proper length that allowed accurate placement of the APEX ARC tissue-sparing hip replacement system.
Mr. Devanney is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Temple University.
