Welcome to “Life at Kessler Foundation” - Episode 5 Read the transcript at https://kesslerfoundation.org/sites/default/files/2021-10/Melvin%20Mejia%20on%20balancing%20time%20to%20capture%20quality%20data%20for%20outcomes%20in%20movement%20rehabilitation-Ep5-TRANSCRIPT.pdf In this episode, I talked with Melvin Mejia, a Research Engineer in our Center for Mobility and Rehabilitation Engineering Research. Since 2015, Melvin has been collecting and analyzing movement data for studies of adults with physical disabilities caused by traumatic brain injury, stroke, and osteoarthritis, and children and adolescents with cerebral palsy. He finds working on multiple studies simultaneously challenging, but credits teamwork with enabling him to balance his time to ensure collection of quality data. Fluent in Spanish, he also helps translate for Spanish-speaking participants. He finds engaging with participants on common interests, whether sports or musical genres, enriches the research experience for him and the volunteers. In the future, Melvin is interested in expanding his involvement in research in physical rehabilitation and mobility into rehabilitation for sports injuries.
