Robert Healey, BS, rEDT, MBA
Rob graduated from UCSD in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering.
Following his interests in human motion and sensation, he spent 3 years working
clinically with Dr. Michael Swenson in Neurology and was certified as an
electrodiagniostic technician. In 1995, he teamed up with Drs. Amiel and Coutts
performing orthopaedic research for almost 20 years with an emphasis on biomechanics
of joints and soft tissues including cartilage, meniscus, tendons and ligaments. He is
currently the lab manager for the Clinical Physiology Laboratory with Dr. Hargens working
on human performance and countermeasures to risks associated with long-term
spaceflight in astronauts. Rob also works with Dr. Christine Chung at the UCSD
musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging research lab and Drs. Santore and Muldoon in the San
