    Personal profile

    Research Profile

    Amit's particular research interests are in the area of Neurorehabilitation (neuromuscular physiology, motor control/impairment and rehabilitation); with the focus on (a) gaining an improved understanding of the control processes that support mobility in healthy people and specifically those with disabilities and (b) developing technology/engineering solutions to tackle the physiological disorders/conditions through devices and device based exercises.

    Current Research:

    Amit's current research is in the area of optimising the use of vibration stimuli for muscle strengthening and rehabilitation applications, both in the healthy population and in the population with stroke and spinal cord injury. Amit uses various neurophysiological tools (high density EMG, Transcranial and peripheral nerve stimulation) and engineering tools (sensors and advanced signal processing methods) to understand the neurophysiolgical basis of vibration stimuli so that this improved understanding can be employed to develop effective rehabilitation device(s) and exercise(s).
