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.
