Boston-based Tekscan in June announced the appointment of Rob Podoloff, MS, as its new chief technology officer (CTO). Podoloff in the late 1980s was one of the company’s original founders.
He’s evaluating developments in nanomaterials and low-power processing, and plans to build on the existing flagship products at Tekscan, many of which he developed, including the F-Scan in-shoe plantar pressure measurement device.
Podoloff is also a lecturer/ lab instructor in mechanical engineering at the Massachu- setts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, where he earned his undergraduate and MS degrees.
