OUR RESEARCH PAGE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, BUT HERE ARE SOME CURRENT STUDIES OUR TEAM IS RESEARCHING!
TEAM-UPS: Tactical Exposure Assessment Metrics – Utilizing Physiologic Signatures
Goal: To maximize our understanding of warfighter performance and injury risk in training and in combat environments
(Funded by the DOD/ONR)
Brain Connectivity Maladaptions Following Knee Surgery: BrainKnee
Goal: Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury is a significant and debilitating injury for young active individuals. ACL injury and associated ACL reconstruction (ACLR) cost the United States healthcare system $1.2 billion annually. Despite the significant financial investment and substantial time in rehabilitation, poor outcomes are apparent for a substantial portion of young, active individuals with ACLR. This longitudinal and prospective study will provide critical knowledge needed to inform future personalized clinical rehabilitation trials with a focus on the brain and knee connection.
Advancing GVS as a Novel, Hands-Free, and Intuitive Interface Modality
Goal: To combine vestibular stimulation with virtual reality to reduce cybersickness and improve self-body perception in virtual reality.
(Funded by DARPA)
The Concussion Assessments in Virtual Environments (CAVE) Study
Goal: To determine alterations in visuomotor control during walking after concussion.
(Funded by ACSM)
Understanding the Neurodevelopment Effects of Youth Tackle Football
Effects of Sport-Related Neurotrauma on Postural Control
Goal: To determine the effects of sports participation and concussion history on postural control across the lifespan.
(Funded by Nationwide Children’s Hospital)
Understanding Law Enforcement Equipment Organization
Goal: To understand what equipment is being carried, how that equipment is carried, and to identify comfort and usability issues related to equipment carriage for law enforcement officers
HERO Survey: Brain, Body, and Behavioral Health in First Responders
Goal: To investigate the interaction between multiple health domains for first responders for the development of improved training, wellness, and healthcare initiatives.
