Alex Yurusov - General Manager, Engineering & Manufacturing

Alex is a pioneer in the field of software engineering. His love of early computer technology led to a seat in the Soviet Union’s first software engineering program, established at the Kyiv Military Aviation Engineering Academy. He successfully defended his forward-looking thesis on Artificial Intelligence and earned his Master’s in Avionics.

Following the breakup of the Soviet Union, Alex made his way to Taiwan, where he founded Pentagon Technologies in 1996. The company designed over 45 video products for Panasonic, Sony, Toyota, Honda, and General Motors Asia – and went on to design MediCapture’s first product, the USB100, which was also the world’s first solid-state medical video recorder. In 2008, MediCapture acquired Pentagon Technologies, allowing the two companies to focus solely on medical imaging systems.

Alex’s passion for medical engineering led him to pursue a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering and Bioinformatics from the National Taiwan University. It allowed him to gain a deeper understanding of the field and equipped him with the knowledge and skills he needed to excel in his assignment. He currently heads up MediCapture’s design and manufacturing operations in Taiwan, where he lives with his wife and three children.
