Dr Ben Sinclair (Early Career Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Neuroscience iBRAIN unit) has been successful in reaching the FameLab* Victorian semi-finals - well done and congratulations Ben!

Ben is one of 13 semi-finalists together with two other researchers from Monash University. He is using a rehabilitation machine, called a Reviver, for people with impairments in their balance and mobility. The Reviver uses gravity and reflex muscle contractions to give people a strong workout, even those who can’t walk or move.

Voting is open for the public now. If you like Ben's the best, please vote and help him get to the National Finals. Share presentations on Twitter with hashtag #FameLabAus.

As a semi-finalist Ben has been awarded a fully supported year-long media training and mentoring programme with the Victorian community broadcast partner 3RRR.
