Catherine Lang, PT, PhD

Professor, Physical Therapy

Our research is aimed at developing effective and efficient, individualized rehabilitation for people with neurological or neurodevelopmental conditions. Our primary interest is human movement and how movement can be a marker of pending conditions (e.g. during development) or be restored after nervous system injury (e.g. stroke). A key tool for our lab is the use of wearable sensors (accelerometers) to quantifying human movement in daily life. This tool offers a convenient, accurate, and economical way of measuring real-world movement outside the clinic or laboratory.
