Research Interests
My primary interest is in development and translation of new technologies for Veterans. The MADE Program has successfully developed and licensed multiple products to industry partners, including ankle-foot prostheses, exercise equipment, skin screening technology, and a standing wheelchair. In addition to product development and translation, I am active in rehabilitation research including studies of Veterans with physical disabilities and mobility challenges.
