“Better Living through Tech”
Catherine Lang: “Use of technology to measure human movement in the real world”
Ryan Duncan: “How do we capitalize on technology platforms to deliver physical rehabilitation?”
The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) Precision Medicine team invites you to an on-going collaboration with Venture Café. These sessions will be hosted on the third Thursday of every month in the @4240 building.
“Use of technology to measure human movement in the real world”
Catherine Lang, PT, PhD, Professor of Physical Therapy, Neurology, Occupational Therapy, Associate Director of Movement Science Program, Washington University in St. Louis
- What people are capable of doing in the clinic during physical therapy sessions does not match what they actually do in real life. We want to bridge the researcher – clinician – consumer gaps in wearable sensors technology to measure movement in daily life.
“How do we capitalize on technology platforms to deliver physical rehabilitation?”
Ryan P. Duncan, PT, DPT, Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy, Neurology, Washington University in St. Louis
- The use of technology to deliver physical rehabilitation is in its infancy. We will discuss how technology is currently used to track adherence to and modify treatment. Further, we will identify limitations associated with the use of technology in rehabilitation and discuss opportunities for optimization for both patients and clinicians.
