$4.6 Million Award to Support Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center
Staying upright is a common challenge for patients with neurological damage from a stroke or older adults with a high falling risk, but pinpointing the specific weaknesses causing falls in a system as complex as the human body can turn diagnosis into high-risk puzzle for clinicians.
“Is the patient falling forward, or backwardto the side, or are they dropping straight down—and why? You need to know to do the rehabilitation,” says Li-Qun Zhang, a professor in the Fischell Department of Bioengineering at the University of Maryland, College Park; he is also a professor of orthopedics and of physical therapy and rehabilitation science at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore… Continue reading.
