Sarah Ewington

Sarah graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering in 2017, joining the Medical Devices and Technologies Group in the same year. Her interest in rehabilitation robotics led to her pursuit of a Master of Engineering focusing on the development of a gait rehabilitation device. This device, the Paediatric Robotic Overground Gait Trainer (PRO-GaiT) is an overground end-effector type device that uses a five-bar linkage mechanism. Sarah’s research focused on the design and multiobjective optimisation of the device as well as the control of the end-effector and overground motion.

Upon completion of her Masters degree, Sarah took up a role at Beca Engineering.
