Using ultrasound to help people walk again

University of Pittsburgh engineer wins NSF CAREER award to develop ultrasound technology that measures muscle movement in incomplete spinal cord injuries. Professor Sharma wearing a lower-limb exoskeleton in his neuromuscular control … READ MORE

Wearable sensors characterize CP gait

Inertial measurement units (IMUs) facilitate the creation of a gait analysis system that is portable and suited for use in the clinic. Research suggests IMUs can be used to measure clinically important gait metrics in children with … READ MORE
