Tactile Device Research on BBC Arabic's 4Tech show

25th February 2012

Being interviewed by BBC Arabic
Being interviewed by BBC Arabic's reporter Nassim Ramadan
Dr Sara Demain and I were interviewed by Nassim Ramadan of BBC Arabic's 4Tech show. 4Tech is considered to be the main Technology show in the Middle East and North Africa, watched by around 20 million people. During the interview, we explained our research into the use of tactile devices to help people regain movement and sensation when they are recovering from a stroke.

The interview was a somewhat strange experience, with all questions first being asked in Arabic (for which we had no idea what Nassim was asking, but was required to start answering anyway) and then English!

The piece aired today on Saturday 25th February 2012, and will be repeated seven times over the coming week. You can find a video of the interview on the BBC Arabic YouTube channel. I've had a go at adding English subtitles to the video - the result of merging a direct word-for-word translation with what we remember saying during the interview (hence we take no responsiblity for any inaccurate translations). The subtitled video clip can be viewed here (copyright BBC, 2012).
