Better Winter Footwear, Slip Detection

Shreya joined the Engineering Health team at the KITE Research Institute (UHN) in 2022 as a Research Analyst. She graduated from the University of Guelph (’21) with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and an interest in helping develop medical devices to improve quality of life and healthcare. Currently, she is working on developing wearable devices that will be used as part of a slip detection system for evaluating the slip-resistance of winter footwear in real-world settings. The data from these devices will give important information on the behaviour of different winter footwear during typical winter use.
