Digital Health Technology for Physical Therapy

This study is currently recruiting for Aim 1, which includes a short interview to help us learn about the barriers and facilitators to using digital health technology for people with Parkinson’s. If you are a physical therapist, a person with Parkinson’s, or a person who works in the technology industry, you may be eligible for this study!

Research Project

Neuromuscular mechanisms of specific trunk interventions in children with cerebral palsy

The goal of the proposed study is to examine the neuromuscular mechanisms underlying the therapeutic effect of hippotherapy and determine whether repeated exposure to a pelvic perturbation force would be effective in improving trunk postural control and gait of children with cerebral palsy. This study is supported by NIH/NINDS, 1R01NS115487, Date of Project Period: 03/01/2020-02/28/2025
