In 2011, I worked as a research assistant in the Wellness Innovation and Interaction Lab headed by Professor Katie Siek. During the school year and into the summer, I had been working with another undergraduate and a PhD student to create a physical therapy device that visualizes patient progress through electroluminescent wire.

To learn more about our research, please visit our project’s website; to learn more about my involvement, please visit my blog. Below are a some images of the device we created. I worked primarily with constructing and designing the enclosures to integrate the human body, textiles, and technology.

I was primarily funded by CREU
