Optimizing Rehabilitation After Stroke: Leveraging Technology to Challenge the Status Quo

No Monument Location

A stroke can happen at any time across the lifespan, often leaving individuals with lasting motor deficits. In order to improve rehabilitation, a better understanding of the underlying motor impairments is needed. Rachel Hawe’s research leverages technologies including robotics to precisely identify the specific impairments an individual has. This work will lead to personalized therapies and improve outcomes for the over 800,000 individuals who have a stroke in the United States every year.
