MSc ETH Zurich in Health Sciences and Technology, Specialist in human movement technology
I studied at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (EPFZ) in the Department of Health Sciences and Technology, specialising in human movement sciences and sport. I followed this by an in-service training course and obtained a diploma in “Medical Training Therapy” (MTT). While studying for my Master’s, I completed a six-month internship at Zurich children’s hospital’s paediatric rehabilitation centre (Kinder-Reha Schweiz, Affoltern am Albis), where I worked with children receiving Lokomat therapy and managed a number of sport therapy programmes. After this experience I knew that paediatric rehabilitation was what I wanted to do from then on. Children’s positive energy is a wonderful thing, and seeing the progress they make thanks to this type of therapy is the best reward you can hope for.
