  • Augmented-reality (AR) Treadmill Training to Improve Gait Symmetry and Dynamic Balance Post Stroke

    Gait impairment is one of the most significant factors that limit stroke survivors to achieve functional independence.  Although many of patients regain the ability to walk following a stroke, their gait is often accompanied by compensatory, irregular, and inefficient movement patterns. Hemiparetic gait is characterized by impaired motor control on the paretic side which results in alterations in temporospatial parameters such as step  more
  • Evaluation of a computerized biofeedback based intervention to improve postural control and remedy balance dysfunction in Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Including Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    The purpose of this research study is to assess your ability to sense small changes in movement under your feet while standing and determine if a computerized balance program could improve your balance. more
  • Development of Signal Processing Toolbox for Assessing Neuromuscular Response during Electrical Stimulation 

    The aim of the study is to explore the development of instrumentation of protocols which will help in understanding the effect of electrical stimulations on the muscle activations in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and able bodied (AB) groups. more
