AddUp, Inc. has announced the establishment of the AddUp Medical Advisory Board – whose mission is to provide AddUp with a non-biased and holistic view of the medical industry as it relates to the development and utilization of metal 3D printing technologies as a means of serving the medical community. The company has appointed Sam Onukuri, Jan Triani, and Severine Valdant – all of whom are from different corners of the healthcare and medical device community – to the advisory board.

Sam Onukuri is an innovative engineering and global thought leader in disruptive technology evaluation – accelerating the commercialization of 3D printing – with specialization in healthcare applications and digital customer delivery models. He is focused on engineering global equity and sustainability and brings extensive international experience spanning Europe, Asia, and North and South America. Sam Onukuri was most recently the Global Head and Senior Fellow for Johnson & Johnson’s 3D Printing Innovation and Customer Solutions divisions.

Jan Triani is an industry leader in the areas of regulatory compliance and is a subject matter expert for FDA audits. She has authored 510(k)s, HDEs, complete Quality Management Systems, 483s, and Warning Letter responses. She also helped foot and ankle start-up businesses sell to larger MDMs, developed and established initial QMS for two startup medical device companies, successfully led Stage I and Stage II assessments with BSI, and achieved 13485 certification with no major non-conformities. Jan Triani is the founder of Triani Consulting and was recently the Director of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs, Patient-Specific for Paragon 28.

Severine Valdant is passionate about technology and the individuals who make technological advances a reality. She took OPM through its evolution from a polymers company to an additive and medical device manufacturer – becoming the first and only remaining company to receive FDA approvals for 3D printed polymeric permanent implants. Severine Valdant is the Chief Commercial Officer for QuesTek Innovations LLC and was recently the President at Oxford Performance Materials, Inc.

“We are honored to welcome three industry veterans to our newly formed Medical Advisory Board. These professionals have proven track records of leveraging additive technologies in safe and reliable manners to improve patient care. Mr. Onukuri, Ms.Triani, and Ms. Valdant will provide unique perspectives in advising AddUp, Inc as we continue advancing our metal 3D printing technologies, software, monitoring suites, and service offerings to empower companies to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing and all its benefits in delivering safe and affordable orthopedic care,” commented Rush LaSelle, CEO of AddUp, on the appointment of the three board members.
