Tatiana Place - Biomechatronics Technician

Tatiana is a recent graduate from Mechanical Engineering at the University of Alberta. Her specialization in Biomedical engineering and initial student internship with Bowhead Corp in 2019 ignited her love for designing and manufacturing adaptive equipment. During her internship with Bowhead, Tatiana donated her hair in a fundraising effort to provide a REACH cycle for a local Calgarian mother longing to get back exploring trails with her son. Tatiana also completed an internship in Brazil working in various hospitals and gaining experience repairing clinical and surgical equipment. When she is not studying or travelling, Tatiana can often be found hiking in the Rocky Mountains, running and biking through the city’s river valley, or slowing things down with a peaceful yoga session. Combining her passion for outdoor recreation, healthy living, and biomedical solutions, Tatiana has found a home with Bowhead Corp where she intends to continue helping as many individuals as possible regain the freedom and independence they deserve.

Sally is a student at the University of Calgary in the Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies program with a focus on adaptive sports.

After graduating high school, Sally worked at summer camps for children and at surf camps in South Africa where she learned about the positive impacts that sports and time spent outside has on individuals, and the importance of creating equal opportunities for everyone.
