Dr. Arnoldussen has a blended background in research, business, medical technologies, engineering and healthcare improvement. She currently manages the UW Hospital and Clinic’s Technology Assessment program. The program reviews medical devices, including clinical and scientific literature evaluations to determine the safety, efficacy, and efficiency of technology along with financial evaluations to better inform hospital decisions.
Previously, Dr. Arnoldussen worked with Wicab, Inc, developing the BrainPort vision device, a non-surgical assistive visual prosthetic for those who are blind. Her research was awarded over $6M in grants from the NIH, Department of Defense, and Google. Wicab is currently commercializing the technology, having received approval in 2013 to sell the device in Europe and Canada, and clearance from the FDA in July 2015 to market the device in the United States.
