The following is a representation of student capstone projects, in various stages from initial trial phase to nearing completion, which are shared between first, second and third year students. Second and third year students, along with the research advisor, serve as mentors to first year students just beginning to work on their capstone project.

  • Disability awareness educational module for kindergarten students

  • Retention of information learned in the disability awareness educational module

  • An analysis of the effect of a posterior to anterior mobilization of the proximal femur on 3-dimensional forces measured at the hip using the Articulated Total Body system

  • The effects of kicking direction on electromyographic activity of the muscles of the stance leg

  • The effects of manually applied tension to the median nerve and brachial plexus on measured wrist extension strength

  • Gait impairments in movement disorders: establishing concurrent validity of an accelerometer device

  • Gait impairments in movement disorders: comparison of Huntington’s, Parkinson’s Disease and Cerebellar disorder
