Motor Control Laboratory
The Motor Control Laboratory is focused on the control of arm and hand movements across the lifespan and in individuals with physical disabilities such as stroke, cerebral palsy and following peripheral nerve injury. Current research interests include the effectiveness of home-based rehabilitation programs to improve upper limb function and the development of new sensory and hand functional assessment tools using body-worn sensor technology. Our long-term goal is to improve delivery and assessment of movement-based therapies, which will ultimately lead to improved quality of life.
