Walking Rehabilitation Lab

HOME

The Motor Control and Rehabilitation of Walking lab (MCRW)

We are a basic and clinical neuroscience lab dedicated to research and development of novel treatments and technologies in the field of walking rehabilitation.

We investigate mechanisms that control the function of walking in persons with typical walking patterns and those with disabilities due to brain damage.

The mission of MCRW is to develop new hypotheses regarding locomotor dysfunction and recovery.

Currently, the MCRW has several active studies examining topics such as integrative strategies to increase the role of somatosensation in the control of walking, optimal incorporation of the visual system to improve walking stability and the capacity to cope with perturbation while walking.

In Cerebral Palsy we investigate muscle oxygenation and hemodynamics as well as low-grade inflammation and additional health biomarkers following endurance versus strength training.

The MCRW offers research-level treatments for persons born with Cerebral Palsy and post Stroke.
