Activities and Updates

Hannes Devos and Melike Kahya from LARRS are presenting a special symposium at the annual conference of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine in Dallas Sept 30-Oct. 3.

The LARRS driving simulator has been fitted with hand controls and spinner knob. Hand controls enable braking and acceleration by hands while the steering spinner knob allows one-handed steering.

Two LARRS students presented their poster at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Section Meetings 2018 in New Orleans, La in February 2018. The poster by Melike Kahya and Kevin Williams is titled "Does Pupillometry Reflect Change in Postural Control: A Proof-of-Concept Study."
