The Max Näder Center for Rehabilitation Technologies and Outcomes Research is directed by Dr. Arun Jayaraman, PT, PhD. It is one of three core research groups based within the Center for Bionic Medicine of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.
The Max Näder team conducts outcomes-based research using advanced wearable sensors in addition to traditional performance-based and patient-reported measures. Currently, the research group is very unique in that it is one of the few clinical centers to develop and execute both industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated research in prosthetics, orthotics, rehabilitation robotics, as well as other assistive and adaptive technologies.
The Max Näder Center was founded via a philanthropic endowment from Ottobock HealthCare to encourage independent research in clinical outcomes in the field of Prosthetics, Orthotics & Rehabilitation Robotics.
