Melissa Boswell & Hannah O’Day- BOOM- Biomechanics on our Minds Podcast Hosts




Melissa Boswell (in her own words): I am a Bioengineering Ph.D. student at Stanford University. My current research bridges the fields of biomechanics, psychology, and computer science to understand not just how we move, but how we think about movement and our motivation for being physically active. My commitment to an active lifestyle, coupled with my passion for understanding human movement, motivate my passions in monitoring and improving movement with novel wearable technologies. I also enjoy science communication, including as a co-host of the podcast Biomechanics On Our Minds (BOOM). I facilitate positive, creative environments, and continuously seek to challenge myself through learning, new experiences, and meeting new people.

Hanna O’Day (in her own words): I am a Boston native, now a Bioengineering Ph.D. student at Stanford University. I have been lucky to be part of many diverse spaces where adaptability, creativity and communication are key. My current research involves both biomechanics and neuroscience to better understand what happens in both our bodies and brain when movement doesn’t go as planned. Particularly, I study how people with Parkinson’s disease walk, and what happens when they have trouble with their mobility and work to design adaptive, personalized and smarter therapies to improve their quality of life. I have loved connecting with patients and people, at the many interfaces and junctions that my research brings me to. Most of all, I love learning and sharing stories. I have loved being a co-host of the podcast Biomechanics On Our Minds (BOOM), which has brought so many stories, connections and laughs. I am excited to continue innovating cultures and environments that are inclusive, fun and diverse.

Dr. E of Highway to Health Show: Living Ageless




Dr. Ernesto Gutierrez, MD
Dr. E is a physician by training and an educator by choice. His education background includes an MD degree with additional training in Age Management and in Regenerative Medicine. Throughout his career he’s learned that people really do want to live healthier, longer lives but are constantly bombarded by the conflicting information. This creates mental overwhelm and prevents lasting change. For this reason, he’s made it his mission to be a guide for as many people as possible through his website, social media channels and –most recently– with his podcast, the Highway to Health Show.

Make Movement Part of Your Working-From-Home Routine




The Moving2Live and FitLabPGH Podcasts are doing something a little different this week. We’re bringing you a video podcast to help make movement part of your working-from-home routine.

Whether you’re faced with working from home for the first time, or looking for a few hacks to make your home office more functional for your body, we hope today’s tips will help you create a home office space that encourages proper posture and regular movement.  You can listen to the audio of the podcast…or click the link to listen and watch…let us know what you think!!

Link to Video podcast: Make Movement Part of Your Working-From-Home Routine

Tip 1: Consider a standing desk. If you’re not ready to commit to a VariDesk (now Vari – https://www.vari.com ) experiment with books, blocks, or boxes to raise your keyboard and monitor to the proper heights. For keyboard placement, you’re looking for elbows at a 90 degree angle (or greater), and a neutral wrist position.

Tip 2: Experiment with a wobble board or other unstable surface. A few to try: a) The Level from Fluidstancehttps://fluidstance.com – designed for standing desks. One caution, if you have pets in your office space, watch out for pinched paws or noses. b) Pono Ola wobble boardhttps://ponoola.com – you sway on inflated orbs – pet paws and noses are safe. c) SandDune Stepperhttps://www.sanddunestepper.com available at RogueFitness.com https://www.roguefitness.com/the-sanddune-power-stepper – different densities of foam create an unstable surface – plus it’s a fun fitness tool.

Tip 3: Tame the time you spend standing (or sitting) still. Set a timer and take a micro-movement break every 15 to 30 minutes…even a few seconds of shoulder rolls may help keep your body and mind fresh!

What are your top tips for working from home? Please share with us in the comments!

For more healthy lifestyle ideas and inspiration, check out the FitLabPGH podcast – we release a new episode (almost) every Sunday at www.FitLabPGH.com and on Spotify and YouTube – see the website for subscription options, and check out the archives…with over 140 episodes (and counting) to choose from, they might lead you to your new favorite activity. Movement is a Lifestyle, not just an activity…and make sure you wash your hands!
