DR. RICKI SIMON

 

BIO
Prior to becoming a patent attorney, Ricki was instrumental in developing a controller for a multi-finger prosthetic hand as part of her doctoral work. This invention was patented, and was described in a full length article in Scientific American Magazine in October, 1998. Partly based on this experience, Ricki then decided to enter the field of patents.

 

Ricki specializes in patent drafting and prosecution primarily in the areas of medical devices, digital health, and mechanical devices and also in a variety of additional fields including agricultural storage and nanotechnology. Ricki has drafted and prosecuted patent applications for universities and hospitals including Technion, Weizmann Institute of Science, and Hadassah Medical Center, and for companies including Given Imaging, NeuroTrax, Brainsway, GrainPro, ThermopeutiX, and YMed (a subsidiary of BARD), among others.
