Join us on November 1, at 5PM ET for the 2021 Marilyn R. Lindenauer Distinguished Speaker Series. We will virtually host Dr. Sunil Agrawal, a Columbia roboticist and professor who works to help improve the lives of our patients as well as many other children and adults.
Dr. Agrawal is also the Director of Robotics and Rehabilitation (ROAR) Laboratory at Columbia University. Neural and orthopedic disorders limit the ability of children and adults to perform activities of daily living. Columbia University Robotics and Rehabilitation (ROAR) Laboratory works on design of innovative robots and their clinical studies, targeted at improving everyday human functions such as sitting, head-turning, standing, walking, stair-climbing, reaching, and others. This talk will provide a perspective of how robotics can be integrated into clinical care. These robotic technologies are targeted for children with cerebral palsy and adults with spinal cord injury, stroke, ALS, and others. Relevant pilot studies will be presented during the talk; Robotics to Improve Balance, Posture, and Mobility in Children and Adults.
