Ventripoint names Jim Graba as application specialist


Ventripoint Diagnostics (TSXV:VPT) has appointed Jim Graba as application specialist and chief trainer to take the clinical lead in the deployment and training of customers. In addition, he will provide product strategy and direction for the development team.

"Jim's appointment is very timely as he adds clinical depth to our deployment team with a focus on broadening the use of the VMS+ in collaboration with our existing and future users," Desmond Hirson, president, said in a statement.

Last week, Ventripoint received FDA approval for its VMS+ medical device for measuring whole heart function using conventional ultrasound.

Mr. Graba previously held positions in the healthcare field, including chief cardiac sonographer at the Toronto General Hospital and manager of echocardiography at the University Health Network.
