WELCOME to the Motor Function & Rehabilitation Lab Website

Sigal Portnoy, PhD

The motor function and rehabilitation lab is dedicated to the study of motor mechanisms and rehabilitation strategies. 


The major research themes of the lab are:

1) Design of new evaluation and treatment tools for clinicians, based on the state-of-the-art technologies.

2) Quantification, evaluation and feedback, provided to the motor-impaired patient by utilizing real-time data of kinematics, kinetics and muscular activity patterns.

3) Development of innovative assistive technology and out-of-clinic rehabilitation solutions.


The work in the lab is highly interdisciplinary, combining aspects of biomedical engineering, rehabilitation medicine, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy.
