C-STAR: Wearable Sensors and Machine Learning to Enhance Ability

Description: Wearable sensors are playing a large role in the future of data collection both in the community and in clinical settings. They will give clinicians and researchers critical insights into the performance of their interventions and thereby lead to better patient outcomes. During this 1 hour on-demand C-STAR webinar, Dr. Cotton discusses what this technology means to the field of rehabilitation. He addresses outcome monitoring, as well as kinematics and electromyography, therapeutic use of sensors, and assistive technology.

Faculty: James Cotton, MD, PhD, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab/Northwestern University, Chicago, IL

Targeted Audience: Physiatrists, Researchers and other clinicians interested in using technology to measure outcomes in a rehabilitation population

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. List three broad domains/objectives for which wearable sensors can be used in rehabilitation.
  2. Identify the name of an emerging technique to track movements from regular video and how might this be useful clinically.
  3. Identify the term for games designed to further rehabilitation objectives.
