IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine's unique aim is to publish original work in the intersection of engineering and clinical translation. The journal's focus is interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers, healthcare providers, and industry and aims to publish results and best practices from these translational efforts.
Isaac S. Chang
Isaac S. Chang (S’13) received a B.ASc. (Honours) in biomedical engineering from Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada in 2010. His undergraduate projects include a patient tracking system using a ZigBee wireless network and the construction of a rickshaw for measuring walking velocity. He joined Empa, Dübendorf, Switzerland as an international trainee, where he was involved in extending pre-existing L4-L5 lumbar spinal FEM model to L2-L5 model using Abaqus. He is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering at the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada. His current research interests include zero-effort technology development, ambient physiological signal processing in the context of internet-of-things setting. Mr. Chang received Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council CREATE Academic Rehabilitation Engineering Scholarship in 2012 and 2013 and AGE-WELL Student Scholarship in 2015 and 2016.
