Analyzes human movement in 3D to prevent injury, promote healing, and improve performance in elite athletes and the athlete in all of us.
"My mom and many others have proven that you don’t have follow a stereotype to be a female scientist. There are so many different and exciting science fields to pursue—not all of them require lab coats and safety goggles. Whatever a girl’s interest, there is a related science field somewhere nearby. For example, skiing has always been a big part of my life, and now I’m doing injury prevention research in skiing and other sports as a career. Growing up, nobody ever told me this was a job I could have! I want girls to know that they can be anything; my job is just one example of that." (Globalnewswire)
Ain't no mountain high enough, to keep #IfThenSheCan ambassador Sarah Wilson from her work as a biomechanical engineer! Sarah is changing the world one step, and slope, at a time. Her work is leading in-vivo skiing injury prevention research studies in-lab and on-snow. She works with elite athletes finding ways to prevent injury, recover from injuries, and perform their best. As a skier herself, Sarah is able to combine her two passions working with technology and sports at the Steadman Philippon Research Institute. Sarah has been involved with SPRI's Science Club and Summer Scholars Program, both of which aim to encourage students to learn more about science surrounding healthcare and show them the variety of careers that can be found in STEM fields.More About Sarah
