From Fall 2019 to Spring 2020, undergraduate student researchers, Nate Addonizio and Lexi Nehls, assisted with the Idiopathic Toe-Walking in children project. They had hands-on experience of assisting both the clinical team (Dr. Marybeth Grant-Beuttler and DPTs) and engineering team… Continue Reading →
This past spring 2020, student researchers (Shannon Toy, Tiffany Lubrino, Armond Gray, CJ De Leon, Amir Memarian, and Mimi Manatad) explored the effects of single leg fatigue on gait and balance in an original research project. Despite COVID-19 ending the… Continue Reading →
Thank you to all at the Crean College Research Night for the great time! It was wonderful to meet and greet everyone who is passionate about science. Tonight was the first time Christopher Hoang and Michael Shiraishi unveiled their project… Continue Reading →
For these experiments, a biomechanics class of 20 DPT students volunteered to conduct their own tests on multiple factors that affect gait parameters such as stride length and sway. Dividing themselves into 3 groups of 10, the students used 3… Continue Reading →
Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) grant is a research initiative by the National Institute of Health (NIH) awarded to 10 universities across the United States. This initiative aims to attract undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds and train them in… Continue Reading →
Team: This year we have 5 interns joining us: Norah Nyangau, Samuel Chan, Nihar Nanjappa, Michael Shiraishi, Mckyla Grant-Beuttler. They bring various skills and interests to the lab. For example, Norah enjoys connecting with others and working in teams, Samuel… Continue Reading →
Toe walking is a style of walking in which a child walks on the balls of his/her feet without heels touching the ground. In our lab, we are designing an intervention technique that promotes plantar extension in children. In the… Continue Reading →
Here we have Christopher Hoang and Kenna Dougherty working with stroke patients in a study designed to accurately assess fall risk using functional analysis of gait and postural stability parameters. Our stroke patients are affected by varying degrees of hemiparesis,… Continue Reading →
Christopher Hoang presents the research from “Gait Rehab Lab” at the Orange Research Expo for Undergraduates, Chapman University. The lab designs and fabricates the sensors and their housing, ranging from bed sore sensor applications to therapy shoes to correct idiopathic toe-walking… Continue Reading →
Harbir Bhatti presents his research involving Gait Real-Time Analysis Interactive Lab (GRAIL) and fall risk assessment in elderly people. Using sensory perturbations and gait parameters analysis, Harbir creates a model assessing fall risk.
Here is Sharon Kim presenting her work with machine learning/deep learning algorithms and idiopathic toe-walking in adolescents. Sharon used these tools to classify toe-toe walking vs. heel-toe walking and build an accurate model.
