00:00:00
Okay there we go so I will present my
00:00:07
not project at skate up. I've done a
00:00:10
little background about to me which
00:00:13
didn't I will go through it very
00:00:15
quickly. So I was mister doubts said I
00:00:19
done my studies in life sciences. And
00:00:22
actually before I done my marketing
00:00:25
project I get up in the industry I've
00:00:28
already done my mandatory into the
00:00:30
shape of two month at another company
00:00:34
but I still decided to do my not
00:00:36
supporting in industry. So okay that is
00:00:41
a startup company and is probably much
00:00:44
less known than a beauty. So I'll just
00:00:47
quickly tell you something about it. So
00:00:49
it as enough of the laboratory of
00:00:53
movement analysis and measurement at
00:00:55
EPFL and was founded in two thousand
00:00:58
and thirteen as you said we there is it
00:01:02
will be another presentation about Kate
00:01:03
up so I will go quickly through this as
00:01:05
well. But maybe the main field of
00:01:08
applications is to do movies movement
00:01:11
measurement and analysis with variables
00:01:14
such as this one and they have this
00:01:17
hardware and also the software and
00:01:19
going into apart for different
00:01:21
applications on the academic side I had
00:01:26
a supervisor at EPFL as it is mandatory
00:01:29
for to take this which was the
00:01:31
professor I mean young from the amount
00:01:33
laboratory. But my project was also in
00:01:37
collaboration with another university
00:01:39
which was university of southampton.
00:01:42
And the faculty of has sciences. And
00:01:45
the reason why we did this like this is
00:01:47
that the CE does not it's very good at
00:01:50
the technical side and that already
00:01:52
made and variable sensors. But was
00:01:55
missing a bit more about the clinical
00:01:56
background and that that's where at
00:01:59
university of Southampton could take
00:02:01
parts because they are very experience
00:02:05
in future therapy and also we have
00:02:07
mutation of the talk the title of my
00:02:12
project was that moment and validation
00:02:14
of unbearable system for home
00:02:16
assessment of operating performance in
00:02:18
stroke patients. So that it's already
00:02:23
sells one of the aims of the project
00:02:26
which was to that block of arable
00:02:28
system that is able to measure are
00:02:31
movements in the home environment in
00:02:33
stroke patients. And there was another
00:02:35
goal which was more interesting for in
00:02:40
the strip on we just get up which was
00:02:42
to adapt and validate existing
00:02:44
algorithms for physical activity money
00:02:46
touring because as you will see fruit
00:02:49
or this is one of the products
00:02:51
indicator of developing. So you can see
00:02:56
what I did doing my project so first
00:02:59
they have to define the protocols what
00:03:02
I want to measure how we want to
00:03:03
measure it and on who there I had a lot
00:03:07
of help from the university of
00:03:09
Southampton which have a lot of
00:03:12
experience in more technical side which
00:03:15
was about to which tests we could use
00:03:17
and so on. But also from gate up and
00:03:20
yeah mom about the sensor placement on
00:03:22
the subject then I had to ask for
00:03:26
ethical approval at owes us
00:03:29
universities. And then when I have this
00:03:32
I could from the measurements which I
00:03:34
did in two parts first I measured
00:03:37
healthy subjects in those on and then I
00:03:40
measured a stroke survivors in
00:03:42
southampton. So I went to Southampton
00:03:44
for a bit less than a month to perform
00:03:47
these measurements the last point of
00:03:51
the project was then to work on this
00:03:54
date a a broken your rhythm and and
00:03:58
that it's results so I could find set
00:04:05
that on the protocols and the obtain
00:04:07
that medical approve no approval to
00:04:09
perform these measurements which I it's
00:04:12
to collect data from twenty
00:04:14
participants ten healthy and ten
00:04:16
strokes object and I could then use
00:04:20
this data to integrate several existing
00:04:22
algorithms together which came for the
00:04:26
upper arm movement and the physical
00:04:28
activity and then I also adapted the
00:04:32
algorithm put up around to the
00:04:34
resistance or and I could validate the
00:04:38
physical activity monitoring algorithm
00:04:40
in a laboratory setting and in the
00:04:43
scope of my project sorry I also
00:04:46
participated at the conference which is
00:04:49
called if mark in Rome where Kate up
00:04:52
had them with so I went there to needs
00:04:55
potential clients and speak with people
00:04:58
who use our systems of the remote
00:05:01
master project I had another small
00:05:04
publication which was the poster at a
00:05:07
conference in limerick last summer
00:05:09
where I went again with data we also
00:05:14
have another publication planned for
00:05:17
this year which is on the arm movements
00:05:20
with the both academic partners and
00:05:23
most important for the in the
00:05:26
industrial post was that we could use
00:05:30
the are we do not I validated for the
00:05:32
physical activity on that TVT one sorry
00:05:35
sorry to that but I make a new product
00:05:38
I could gain a lot of experience using
00:05:43
such bearable sensors and doing a great
00:05:45
things from Montana lit and that it is
00:05:48
but I also saw the user experience
00:05:51
right because I was working a lot with
00:05:54
the sensors and because I met the
00:05:57
people from university of Southampton
00:06:00
which very interested in then buying a
00:06:02
system. And for me the highlight was I
00:06:05
was hired it up. And the support
00:06:08
manager so what I I've learned during
00:06:13
my master project is that it's
00:06:15
important to be aware of your skills to
00:06:18
learn to be aware of your skills for
00:06:21
example I've learned during that month
00:06:23
project that I'm quite good at
00:06:26
explaining technical details to people
00:06:30
with different backgrounds for example
00:06:32
the physiotherapist at university of
00:06:34
south hunting didn't have any
00:06:36
background about variables and that was
00:06:38
able to explain to them what my
00:06:40
algorithm was doing how I would use the
00:06:42
sensors and someone. So that is also
00:06:45
very helpful now in my job as a support
00:06:47
manager as I'm having contact with the
00:06:50
customers and some don't have technical
00:06:54
background so to be in contact with
00:06:56
them and to explain things as was
00:07:00
mentioned before internships always
00:07:02
been good contacts and increase your
00:07:05
network. And therefore I think it's an
00:07:08
important that you do the into shape in
00:07:10
if you did very who are really
00:07:11
interested in not because it's a big
00:07:14
company and that it has a big name but
00:07:18
if you are able to make new contacts in
00:07:21
the field that you're interested in
00:07:23
there are very valuable also for a few
00:07:26
students as I know that most of them
00:07:28
like to go abroad to for them also
00:07:31
project it's not impossible to go
00:07:33
abroad when you you market is is in the
00:07:36
industry you just have to ask for it
00:07:40
and maybe insist a bit that was it.
