Agility is the ability to make rapid, purposeful and controlled transitions between movement patterns. This fundamental walking skill is often compromised following neurologic impairment. Our research aims to understand the neuromechanical basis of human locomotor agility and to apply this knowledge to advance gait rehabilitation. Specifically, we are working to:
- Improve the characterization and assessment of locomotor stability and maneuverability
- Develop intelligent robotic tools to optimize the recovery of dynamic balance
- Speed the recovery of neuromuscular function through enhanced sensory feedback mechanisms.
