Recent extramurally funded studies have included the quantitative assessment of physiological function and functional performance and the effects of specific exercise interventions on the elderly and patients with juvenile arthritis, osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis and post-polio syndrome.

Recent and Past Research

Investigators studied the effects of a resistive respiratory muscle exercise training program on respiratory muscle strength and endurance, as well as fatigue, exercise capacity, and functional performance, on Multiple Sclerosis patients.
This study explored how a personal cooling vest may affect functional performance in multiple sclerosis patients.

Research Collaborations

Using web-conferencing technology, this innovative study aims to improve adherence to home exercise regimes and prevent falls in older adults.
