Utilizing that data reduces upper body injuries and allows users and clinicians to have a broader understanding of wheelchair utilization outside of the clinic. His poster was entitled “SmartHub: Manual Wheelchair Data Extraction and Processing Device.”

“Placing at this event, alongside incredibly intelligent students and their hard work, has reassured me that my research is not only significant within the lab, but could have implications and improve lives outside of the classroom,” said Einstein, who is earning his master’s degree.

The Edward F. Hayes Research Forum allows Ohio State graduate students to showcase innovative and exemplary research spanning across the full range of Ohio State graduate degree programs. This event serves to facilitate fruitful exchanges between students, faculty, administration and the public. The 33rd Edward F. Hayes Graduate Research Forum took place March 1, 2019 and was co-sponsored by the Council of Graduate Students, Graduate School and Office of Research.
