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...
The adoption of powered myoelectric prostheses and their ability to improve quality of life for persons with amputations is hindered by the difficulty of controlling multiple degrees of freedom with a limited number of input signals. Different myoelectric control strategies have been developed to...
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 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...
