Before launching his career as a medical device technology executive and strategist, Eyad Kishawi spent two years as a member of the faculty at the University of Rochester. In this role, Mr. Kishawi performed systems neuroscience research that connected human reflex kinematics with robotic dynamics. In 1999, Eyad Kishawi joined Fox Hollow Technologies in Redwood City, California as a Principal Biomedical Engineer. Eyad worked on a prominent project during his time with Fox Hollow Technologies, which included an image morphology detection system for high-frequency ultrasounds and a wide-band technique designed for use during interventional procedures to identify acoustic impedance of tissue. The company went public. Eyad Kishawi joined the Mountain View-based NeuroPace as a Principal Biomedical Engineer, where he was the eighth employee. He assumed responsibility for a number of key areas at NeuroPace, including algorithm design, software development, clinical research, and intraoperative data collection. In addition to developing a chaotic prediction model for epilepsy onset, Eyad Kishawi pioneered a unique approach to relating basal ganglion activity to tremor kinematics in patients with Parkinson’s disease. Eyad Kishawi also served as the Director of Electrical and Software Engineering at Spinal Modulation in Menlo Park, California, where he was the fourth employee. During his time with the company, he developed a new method for quantifying pain-afferent activity and classifying postures as detected by an implantable neurostimulator. Mr. Kishawi published a number of patents on low-power stimulation. Today, Eyad draws upon his extensive experience in the field of medical technology to serve as a consultant in the field of active diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices.Eyad Kishawi also bootstrapped a technology development business that serviced a variety of Medical Device companies. At BioElectric Solutions, Mr. Kishawi served as president and CEO. Some of BioElectric’s clients included Hospira, UCSF, Pulmonx and stealth-mode entrepreneurs. His most notable contribution there was a new method for non-invasive neurostimulation resulting in deep high-intensity fields using multiple energy modalities.
