Current Research

Three men in a lab. One with prosthetic knee and two scientists.

 conducts research to develop new technologies and techniques to help individuals with severe physical disabilities walk again and be physically active. 

Research studies include rehabilitation engineering, prosthetics, orthotics, assistive devices, engineering design, biomechanics, human gait, gait and balance assessment, video-game based rehab, evidence-based practice, and technologies for developing countries.
