2014 research

My research uses biomechanical and clinical measures to evaluate postural stability and movement strategies during functional activities (stair descent, sit-to-stand, and gait) in older adults. Specific interests include stability assessment for individuals with musculoskeletal pathology, the analysis of directional changes during gait, and the comparison of movement strategies across age groups during sit-to-stand.
