Science In Images: the History of Spacelabs

Back in February, I made the decision to join a Medical Device company, based just outside of Seattle; Spacelabs.

Founded in 1958 by two scientists, the company developed cardiac monitoring and telemetry systems for NASA, which were used to monitor astronauts’ vital signs during the Gemini and Apollo space missions, culminating in Neil Armstrong wearing Spacelabs medical telemetry for the first moon landing in 1969.

That technology was the beginning of the equipment that Spacelabs makes today, focusing on patient care in the monitoring and cardiology space.

As with all jobs, it has its problems, but I feel lucky to get to work on innovative equipment that saves lives.
