Boston Section Life Members Seminar

April 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The [Musculoskeletal Control and Dynamics Lab](http://zaferioulab.com/) at Stevens Institute of Technology has a mission to understand and improve movement mechanics during activities of daily living and athletic maneuvers. Dr. Antonia Zaferiou, Director of this lab, focuses current research on how people concurrently manage multiple mechanical objectives during complex and ecologically valid whole-body rotations. Working towards improving movement mechanics, her team and collaborators have been developing sound biofeedback to facilitate motor learning using “sonification”, which conveys movement measurements through musical cues and soundscapes in real-time. In this talk, she will describe how the lab is uncovering strategies older adults use to balance during turning while walking and developing adaptive sonified biofeedback to facilitate balance training. This research includes critical goals to (a) personalize biofeedback so that it partners and adapts with each older adult’s motor behavior and (b) compare turns in real-world environments to those performed inside the lab using wearable sensors.
