Researching Sensory-specific Peripheral Stimulation

The purpose of this research project is to understand the neurophysiological mechanisms of peripheral electrical stimulation (PES) in modulating tremors, sometimes seen in Parkinson's disease.

Research Project

Corbett Ryan Project

Wearable Sensor and Video Platform to Monitor Motor Development in Infants

The goal of this project is to develop an automated, precise, quantitative biobehavioral assay for detecting infants at risk, and then rigorously test an early-life intervention to promote typical motor movement and sensory development in those infants in a manner designed for uptake and dissemination.

Assessment and Monitoring of Neuromotor Function through Advanced Dynamic Pose Estimation

We plan to use videos of people with Parkinson's disease (PD) doing different things to develop sophisticated computer programs that can detect specific movement patterns that are only seen in people with PD.

Stroke Throat Sensor

Wearable Sensor Platform to Monitor Stroke Recovery

This project proposes continuous monitoring, quantification, and interpretation of recovery during inpatient treatment of stroke using non-invasive, portable, real-time body-worn sensors.

AbilityLab Receives Center Grant to Test Effectiveness of Home and Community Services

A new center grant recently was awarded to Shirley Ryan AbilityLab to create a system to evaluate home and community-based services. The grant — with funding of $4.4 million over five years — started on Sep. 1 and is through the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR), an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Spinal Cord Injury Spotlight

Established in September 2014, National Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Awareness Month raises awareness about SCI, and the need for better treatment and education. At Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, this month also gives us an opportunity to reflect on our patients, team and community.
Meet some of our outstanding colleagues and patients as they share their reflections on what this National SCI Month means to them.

Assessment and Monitoring of Neuromotor Function through Advanced Dynamic Pose Estimation

We will use videos of people with Parkinson's disease (PD) doing different things to develop sophisticated computer programs that can detect specific movement patterns that are only seen in people with PD. We will then see how well our computer programs can diagnose early PD, compared with medical and clinical professionals.
