Kat Steele presented our recent work on altered synergies during gait in cerebral palsy and the impact of altered gait patterns at the International Society of Biomechanics conference on July 15, 2015 in Glasgow, Ireland.
Kat Steele & Mike Schwartz presented their research demonstrating that synergies measured from EMG are predictive of post-operative outcomes after botulinum toxin injections, selective dorsal rhizotomy, and multi-level orthopaedic surgery. These results will support future research to determine if synergies can be used clinically to quantify patient-specific changes in control and guide treatment planning.

Dr. Steele has been selected as one of five finalists for the David Winter Young Investigator Award at the International Society of Biomechanics. She will be presenting in the award session on Wednesday, July 15th at the conference in Glasgow. She will be presenting the results of her research on:
Altered muscle synergies during gait in cerebral palsy are not due to altered kinematics or kinetics.
Dr. Steele has been invited to speak at the International Society of Biomechanics’ Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics. Learn more about the event HERE.
