Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


An interdisciplinary collaboration between engineering and allied health clinician-scientists forms the basis for the development and testing of virtual reality technology and it delivery. An overview of the development of the haptic interface used for lower extremity rehabilitation and its interface with web-based technology for the delivery of rehabilitation is described. Preliminary findings are discussed. Future endeavors are outlined.
