In this webinar, you will learn how advanced technology creates endless opportunities for human movement research and treatment.
Advanced technology enables researchers to create cutting-edge research protocols, to study both fundamental and applied research of human movement performance. Additionally, that same advanced technology offers a safe and challenging environment for clinical rehabilitation of any motor impairment.
