Role: Investigator

 
My duties included writing research proposals and IRB documents. Communicate and coordinate with physicians and physical therapists and interact with patients during patients’ recruitment processes. Schedule patients’ testing, training sessions, and follow-ups testing to investigate the effectiveness of rehabilitation programs and to tract patients’ changes using different clinical and biomechanical outcomes. Conduct clinical testing and motion analysis testing (Using Vicon workstation and Nexus for motion capture). Administering the study rehabilitation program and processing motion data using different software including, LabVIEW, Visual3D, DICOM. Create and develop software codes for data analysis included analyzing biomechanical and EMG data (LabVIEW, Visual3D, DICOM, some experience with MATLAB). Use statistical software (SPSS) for data analysis and data interpretation. Write and review journal manuscripts. Write studies’ annual reports and abstracts, and present at national and international conferences (i.e. ACSM, CSM, ORS, and ESSKA), as well as write a dissertation proposal, and journal manuscripts.
