Steve Axelrod

Steve has led teams delivering numerous best in class systems in both medical devices and industrial automation. Some examples are nuclear basis weight, x-ray and infrared absorption sensors, and a unique miniature therapeutic x-ray radiation source. He worked as a director at Measurex- Honeywell for 15 years and in 2003 entered the medical device field.

Steve became CEO of G-Tech Medical in November 2011. This work combines his experience leading high performance R&D teams and expertise in creating sophisticated measurement systems. G-Tech Medical is developing an “EKG for the gut,” a wireless, wearable patch-based system that reads electrical signals from the digestive tract. His enduring passion for the work comes from his daughter Lindsay, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 13.
