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.
