Publications
Human Performance Lab As a branch of Scholl’s Center for Lower Extremity Ambulatory Research (CLEAR), consists of a core team of clinicians, biostatisticians, and epidemiologists who have worked together for some eight years and contains participation from endocrinology, biochemistry and molecular biology, bioengineering, neuroscience, and behavioral medicine. This collaborative relationship has resulted in over 250 publications relating to the diabetic foot, fall prevention and evaluation of the quality of life during daily physical activity.
