Overground crew declare future belongs to biomechanics


OMAHA, Neb. (December 3, 2018)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” recently released a new episode titled, “Biomechanics is the future.”

In this episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss how biomechanics can be used to make affordable prosthetics for children, revolutionize the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, and the accurate diagnosis of concussions. The crew also talk about exploding shoes, which—it turns out—serve a really good purpose.

The episode also featured 3D-printed prosthetics, a COPD platform and a device to help researchers study falls.

Innovation Overground was created to help promote academic innovation and the technology transfer and commercialization efforts at the University of Nebraska and beyond. The podcast intends to examine what it takes to advance academic inventions and discoveries beyond the research bench and into people’s lives as “actual things on a shelf.”

New episodes are published on Mondays, and are available on most podcast channels, including Google Play Music, iTunes, iHeartMusic, Podomatic, Spotify and Spreaker.
