Blesson Ezra joins ELAROS Summer 2023 Placement Programme
ELAROS selected Blesson Ezra to join the company’s 2023 summer placement programme.
Blesson is a MEng Bioengineering student at the University of Sheffield, specialising in Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials.
Blesson has a keen interest in the future of digital healthcare, biomimetics and biomaterials. He’s particularly driven in the natural materials aspect of his degree and will be undertaking a master’s project in studying the structure of silk and the subsequent clinical application. He also enjoys playing tennis, cricket, running and exploring the beautiful Peak District.
On his summer placement, a significant portion of his time was dedicated to researching the clinical context of Long COVID and the pivotal role played by the C19-YRS, a digital assessment and monitoring tool within Elaros’ pipeline of products. Blesson found out more about the company’s efforts to expand its reach internationally and its commitment to a collaborative triad of academics, clinicians, and industry partners.
He explored potential avenues for the expansion of Elaros’ C19-YRS system into other chronic conditions. His research focused on Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROM) for pulmonary rehabilitation, particularly with regard to the clinical needs of individuals suffering from COPD, which further emphasized the importance of digitisation in terms of time efficiency and the quality of care provided.
