We are working with clinical partners to optimize treatment to improve mobility in people with Parkinson's disease.
We've estimated low back loads during walking in people with a lower-limb amputation to investigate their high prevalence of low back pain. We are expanding this approach to evaluate prosthetic prescription and fit.
We use musculoskeletal modeling to determine the force and function from individual muscles. We analyze these results to assess the efficacy of physical therapy protocols and guide future treatments.
We analyzed dynamic balance when using powered and passive prostheses. We are continuing these efforts to improve performance of novel prosthetic devices.
