Evaluation of A Clinical Decision Support Tool for Selecting Optimal Rehabilitation Intervention for Injured WorkersDownload
Objective: To evaluate the concurrent validity of a newly developed clinical decision support tool (Work Assessment Triage Tool, WATT) by comparing the rehabilitation interventions determined using the WATT with the current gold standard–clinician recommendations. Methods: This is a secondary...
Walking adaptation, training and assessment in young children and individuals with incomplete spinal cord injuryDownload
This thesis includes four projects that examine motor learning and assess novel approaches for the training and evaluation of walking. In Project 1 we study motor adaptation in children aged 8-36 months using a split-belt treadmill. Split-belt walking, in which one leg moves faster than the...
Paraspinal muscle morphology, composition and asymmetries: determinants and relation to low back pain and pathology.Download
Background The lumbar paraspinal muscles are critical to provide spine stability, maintain proper posture and assist trunk movement. Although considerable attention has been focused on the association between variations in paraspinal muscle morphology and low back pain (LBP), their role in the...
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...
Background: Exercise adherence is particularly low among elderly patients with low functional capacity. Purpose: This study was undertaken to assess the relationship between measures of physical function (PF) with physical activity (PA) in elderly cardiac patients. Methods: PF was assessed in...
