We have found that spastic muscle, although having a normal stretch reflex, has a significantly higher intrinsic muscle stiffness compared to control muscle.
Development of New 3D-Printed Cell Culture Assays for Therapeutic Discovery in Cerebral Palsy and Stroke
We spatially pattern muscle stem cells (called satellite cells) and other cells to create in vitro 3D tissue models to study cell-cell interactions and other changes in cerebral palsy and stroke
A minimally invasive, fiber-optic technique that accurately measures the passive stretch and twitch contraction of living muscle tissue could someday be an alternative to the painful muscle biopsies.
Individualized seating system can promote good posture, enhance breathing and digestion, prevent complications such as pressure sores and skin irritation.
Go Baby Go enables toddlers with paralysis to enjoy the physical and social benefits of mobility, empowering them to be part of the action at home and on the playground.
A new study led by Ming Wu, PhD and research scientist, and his team at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, is the first to provide direct evidence to indicate that improving weight shifting capacity of children with CP may improve their overall walking function.
