We were able to (responsibly) gather last week to say thank you and farewell to Dr. Joanna Reeves, and thanks to our summer contract Team. Dr. Joanna Reeves is a post-doc hailing from England, and reached us via a posting at the University of Guelph. She is doing important work on indwelling fine-wire electrodes. Publication [...]
This is what you get when you have a gathering of researchers who have backgrounds in engineering (biomedical mechanical and electrical), physiotherapy, sport and exercise science, and public health - proof that social distancing rules can be practiced while you enjoy each others company! If you haven't met Marina - she is a pelvic floor [...]
We want to acknowledge our Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) Scholarship winners for the hard and fine work they did! The poster presentation is on hold, but we are shouting out to Spencer Korol (4th year Health Sciences), Zeina Mann (2nd year Biomechanical Engineering), and Junyi Wang (4th year Software Engineering) -- it is a [...]
A look back to February 2020 when Dr. Joanna Reeves visited her friend and fellow researcher Dr. Susanne van der Veen at the Motor Control Lab at VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University). The study involves using virtual reality as an intervention for participants with lower back pain to improve movement and address the fear of moving. [...]
Ana is an incredible cook - her engineering brain works magic in the kitchen. We are all personally glad to see her with more tools for food creation!

Dr.McLean really enjoyed attending as well as participating in this conference! She was in a roundtable discussion on musculoskeletal pain as well as presenting "Evaluation and Monitoring of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction: Intersection between Technology and Physical Exam". Dr.McLean seen here with session moderator Amy Stein (left), and Carolyn VanDyken (middle) who also presented in the Musculoskeletal Pain and Dysfunction Roundtable.
