A pilot study investigating arm and leg FES-assisted cycling as an intervention for improving ambulation after Incomplete Spinal Cord InjuryDownload
People with incomplete spinal cord injury (iSCI) have the potential for recovering walking through plasticity-induced changes in the remaining neural circuitry. Current rehabilitation for walking attempts to induce such changes by providing relevant sensory inputs and motor commands through...
Adaptive and Autonomous Switching: Shared Control of Powered Prosthetic Arms Using Reinforcement LearningDownload
Powered prosthetic arms with numerous controllable functions (i.e., grip patterns or movable joints) can be challenging to operate. Gated control---a common control method for myoelectric arms and other human-machine interfaces---allows users to select a function by switching through a static...
This project is a collaborative venture between four stakeholder groups in the physical therapy profession. Representatives from education, regulation, practice and a payer organization came together to develop a resource guide intended to support physical therapists in the treatment of injured...
EASE-BE-FIT: Elder-Friendly Approaches to the Surgical Environment Bedside Reconditioning for Functional Improvements An Innovative Reconditioning Program for Elderly Emergency Abdominal Surgery Patients
EASE-BE-FIT: Elder-Friendly Approaches to the Surgical Environment Bedside Reconditioning for Functional Improvements An Innovative Reconditioning Program for Elderly Emergency Abdominal Surgery PatientsDownload
Introduction: Elderly individuals who are hospitalized due to emergency abdominal surgery spend on average over 80% of their recovery time in bed, resulting in early and rapid muscle loss. As these elderly individuals have a lower physiological reserve, the impact of muscle wasting on function...
The development of a translational research path has traditionally been a haphazard approach, filtering technologies so that the ‘best of breed’ may ultimately succeed. The conversion ratio of brilliant ideas to useful devices remains suboptimal, as many ‘fail to progress’. The reality of...
