Short takes: WHILL, BioScrip
WHILL teamed up with Stanford graduate and undergraduate students and Prof. David Jaffe for an engineering course called “Perspectives in Assisted Technology.” As part of the course, students designed, fabricated and tested prototypes for improving the experience for WHILL users traveling at night. The final design uses LED strips on various parts of the device to improve visibility for the user, and for drivers and pedestrians. Using three knobs, users can control color settings and light intensities…BioScrip, a provider of infusion and homecare management services, has named Jeffrey Kreger senior vice president, CFO and treasurer. Kreger joins BioScrip with more than 25 years of experience in financial and executive leadership roles.
