    A couple days ago I sent out a message requesting advice on finding
    biomechanics companies to send my resume to. These are the responses
    I've received so far:

    There are a couple resources, although not specific to biomechanics, that
    you may want to check out. The first is a printed directory of biomedical
    device manufacturers, which I believe is called the Medical Device
    The second resource is an extensive list of biomedical companies which is
    available on-line at:

    I think the Purdue University chapter of the Biomedical Engineering
    Society has a listing of a couple hundred companies related
    to the field. Let me know if you find anything thing else, I'll
    be graduating with a Master's in a year and a half.
    Good Luck!

    Your best guide to medical cos. in this region is from the directory of
    of the Pgh High Tech Council. They have their members all segmented by
    and very good descriptions. They are at 412 687-5200. They may have
    directory on the web. This might work:

    The second shot is a database called "Marketplace". Has 14 million
    on CD ROM. I'm sure you would find it in a lib. Very quick searches to
    cos. by SIC code.

    I would suggest getting a copy of the latest American Society of
    Biomechanics membership directory, and looking for companies which have
    members. These companies are likely to do biomechanics-related work.

    A few companies I know of:

    Intermedics Orthopedics (Austin, TX) - orthopedic implants
    Failure Analysis Associates (Menlo Park, CA) - engineering consultants
    Virtual Technologies (Palo Alto, CA) - movement analysis
    Johnson & Johnson Orthopedics (Boston, MA) - orthopedic implants
    Running shoe companies (most have research labs)
    General Motors (MI) - biomechanical crash impact studies

    Check out the subsidiaries of Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson. They make all
    sorts of good stuff. Annual reports from large companies often have
    information on their startup ventures and current research products.

    Good Luck!
