Karen Van Ooteghem.Karen is interested in age-related changes in central nervous system function and the effects of these changes on balance and mobility. Currently, her primary focus is to determine what combination of measures captured during clinical balance and mobility assessment aids in the earliest possible detection of balance and mobility impairment and provides the greatest diagnostic and prescriptive utility. A key component of this work is the study and use of wireless sensor technologies as an adjunct to traditional assessment.
