Dr. Ryan Roemmich is a human movement scientist interested in walking and rehabilitation of persons with neurologic damage or disorders. My background spans engineering, clinical gait analysis, and neuroscience. My research focuses on combining these disciplines to understand how the nervous system controls locomotion and how we can improve walking in persons with gait dysfunction. I use many techniques to study human movement, including three-dimensional motion capture, pose estimation, electromyography, interactive feedback, musculoskeletal modeling, and clinical examination. Interdisciplinary collaboration is a strong emphasis of my work, as I have published with academic and clinical faculty in engineering, kinesiology, physiology, psychology, neurology, neuroscience, neurosurgery, physical therapy, and language sciences. My long-term research goals aim to develop innovative, effective walking treatments for persons with neurologic damage or disease. Our work has been funded by the NIH, the American Heart Association, the Association of Academic Physiatrists, and pilot project awards through Stanford University.
I do not have any relevant financial / non-financial relationships with any proprietary interests.
