Karl Zelik, PhD and Emily Matijevich of Vanderbilt University are our guests for this Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast. Dr. Zelik is an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering and co-directs the Center for Rehabilitation Engineering & Assistive Technology (CREATE). CREATE aims to improve health, mobility, and independence for individuals with disabilities, and to enhance human capabilities beyond biological limits, by engineering, measuring, optimizing and understanding technologies that physically augment human performance. Emily Matijevich is a Mechanical Engineering PhD student working with Dr. Zelik. Emily’s research interests include musculoskeletal overuse injuries and opportunities for preventing these injuries with wearable technology and smart assistive devices. For her work, Emily is a recipient of a 2019 Women in Sports Tech Fellowship.
