Research Support at Medical Physics

 

14566457_10153832889555811_1249743526352907508_oMovement for Hope was invited to teach third year engineering students at UCL about neurological conditions and Motor Neuron Disease (MND). The students were at the beginning stages of developing a new prototype for a neck brace for people with MND who struggled with neck weakness.

 

Sarah Ezekiel, Amber Michelle Hill, and Emma Biondetti helped to teach the students about brain and spinal cord diseases and MND. The students asked questions about neurological conditions and living with MND.

 

They have now set out to develop an innovative prototype! We wish them good luck with their design and will check back with them once it is near completion!

TEDx: Movement uniting cross-disciplinary work

The founder of Movement for Hope paves an interesting path for our perceptions of movement, explaining different components of movement (i.e. scientific, social and creative components) and how they are associated with the human experience. As we near the end this journey through the various aspects of movement described, we learn how to can take definitions of movement and use them to connect art and science in a meaningful way.
