Kinesiology Assistant Professor Brittany Heintz Walters was awarded the American Society of Biomechanics 2021 Junior Faculty Research Award. Heintz’s research focuses on understanding neuromuscular changes associated with movement impairments in healthy older adults and patient populations. This project will evaluate the performance of a soft robot for hand rehabilitation (developed by Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Yen-Lin Han) as a critical step toward improving hand motor function and quality of life in stroke survivors.
