Peripheral nerve injury occurs in approximately 3% of trauma victims across North America. These injuries carry a large socioeconomic burden, and new nerve-repair strategies are needed to improve clinical outcomes.
We were approached by researchers at Dr. Chan's lab at the University of Alberta to create a 2D explainer animation to highlight a novel surgical technique on peripheral nerve regeneration.
This novel surgical technique, called Conditioning Electrical Stimulation, is a less invasive method that can stimulate nerve to grow 5 times faster than their usual rate, thereby improving clinical outcomes. This animation was produced in collaboration with my talented colleagues: Tracy Xiang, Felix Son, and Avesta Rastan.

Animation ● Process
The production process involved the visual development of the stylesheet, storyboarding, asset development and then animation. My colleagues and I all contributed to every step of the process. My primary contributions involved the visual development of the stylesheet, storyboarding and asset creation.
