Ellis Garai recently completed his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Biodesign & Mechatronics concentration) at Stanford. He graduated summa cum laude from the UCLA with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering (Design & Manufacturing concentration).
Ellis has worked for Advanced Bionics (Boston Scientific) as part of the part of the R&D and Emerging Indications team. He was responsible for driving forward the sacral nerve stimulation device for urge incontinence, and also contributed to the deep brain and spinal cord simulation projects. While there, he enjoyed working closely with managers, physicians, engineers, and patent attorneys. He participated in market analysis, patent/journal searches, brainstorming sessions, and prototyping. His work there has lead to two utility patents currently being filed (and 15 patent proposal submissions to Advanced Bionics patent lawyers).
As an entrepreneur, Ellis has worked on several early stage medical device ventures.

Ellis led a team to win first place in the BMEidea Competition and the Stanford Entrepreneurship Challenge, second place in the Babson School of Business Entrepreneurship & Innovation Competition, and a spot among the top ten finalists in the National Collegiate Inventors Alliance Venture Well Cohort. Articles detailing some of these successes have been published in the Stanford Daily, medGadget.com, Entrepreneur.com, and Inventor's Digest Magazine. This momentum propelled Ellis to co-found Logimed Inc.
