International Women in Engineering Day!

Have you ever suffered from back or joint pain? Do you know anyone who’s had knee or hip replacement? Almost each and every one of us has been affected by mobility challenges at some point in life. Unfortunately, 50% of patients who undergo replacement surgery, develop osteoarthritis later on. Dr. Arielle Fischer of the Technion’s Biomotion Lab, together with her team of scientists and engineers, is investigating motion using high-tech wearable sensors, smart devices and reflective markers utilized to collect data and drive personalized methods for prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of movement disorders and injuries. Watch this fascinating video here. Happy International Women in Engineering Day!
