Congratulations to ScaLAR member Ariella Mansfield and GRASPees Rebecca Li and Michael Sobrepera on winning Penn Health-Tech’s Rothberg Catalyzer

Ariella Mansfield, Rebecca Li, and Michael Soprepera won the Penn Health-Tech’s Rothberg Catalyzer, a two-day makerthon that challenges interdisciplinary student teams to prototype and pitch medical devices that aim to address an unmet clinical need.

The team took home the top prize of $10,000 for their project, an orthotic device that children with cerebral palsy can more comfortably wear as they sleep.
