Relevant On-Campus Events and Opportunities:

HES Speaker Series - Catherine E. Lang P.T., Ph.D.
Researchers have spent decades studying rehabilitation interventions for improving mobility, balance, and upper limb function post stroke. Trial outcomes are measured at the functional capacity level, where capacity is defined as what a person is capable of doing in the structured environment of the clinic or laboratory.  It has long been assumed that improvements in capacity result in improvements in real-world performance, where performance is defined as what a person actually does in daily life, outside of the clinic or laboratory.
This talk will discuss how we use wearable sensors to capture critical aspects of human movement, some of the surprising findings that arise from measuring movement in daily life, and future directions for the field.  Please come for a lively and intellectually stimulating discussion.
Friday December 13th | 3pm | HES Teaching Facility
