David Brumfield is a Research Consultant who specializes in Biomedical Product Development. Brumfield is available to medical professionals, corporations and inventors for consulting services on a freelance basis.
David Brumfield maintains well over four decades of experience in Biomedical Research & Product Development. Two worlds that go hand-in-hand, Brumfield’s work in product development, as well as his contributions to 52 U.S. Patents have been critically research-based and research-backed. Over the years, he has contributed to the publishing of 30 presentations, articles and research publications.
Presentations & Publications
“Pedicle Screw Fixation of the Thoracic Spine: An In Vitro Biomechanical Study on Different Configurations” (2005)
Published in SPINE Volume 30, Number 22 in contribution with fellow professionals in medicine, Vedat Deviren, MD, Christian M. Puttlitz, PhD, Emre Acaroglu, MD, Michael O’Brien, MD, Joe Lee, BS, Timothy R. Kuklo, MD, Masaru Fujita, MD, David Polly, Jr., MD, Serena Hu, MD and Lawrence G. Lenke, MD. In this publication, David Brumfield contributed to research discussing critical new approaches in spine surgery. Specifically, Brumfield and his colleagues’ research dives into the way different configurations of a pedicle screw impact the thoracic spine.
The research David Brumfield contributed to this publication has also been cited in various other presentations, which he has been a part of. Most notably, the discussion of pedicle screws and impact on thoracic spine surgery is pivotal in the following published works:
- “Thoracic Spine Construct Stability Is Dependent Upon the Number and Configuration of Pedicle Screws” (2004)
- “Finite Element Modeling of Thoracic Pedicle Screw Constructs” (2003)
- “Anterior Plowing Resistance Studies with Fenestrated Cemented Pedicle Screws in Human Cadaver” (2002)
Brumfield was instrumental in improving the design & mechanical stability of interlocked nailing of long-bone fractures.
Each of these research publications depicts different models, interpretations and examinations which exhibit the results and findings of David Brumfield’s research on how pedicle screw products can positively impact spine surgery procedures. All of Brumfield’s research directly ties into his development and invention of biomedical products in the specialized areas of orthopaedics and spine surgery.
On an independent, freelance basis, David Brumfield is available for consultations. Brumfield specializes in biomedical research, product development and the process of securing patents.
