informing treatments to prevent injuries




summary

Sideways falls can cause life-threatening injuries like hip fractures. Using novel algorithms, my colleagues and I identified how major muscle groups keep the body balanced sideways during forward walking at different speeds. These insights could inform future treatments for balance problems associated with stroke, cerebral palsy, scoliosis, and muscle weakness.
