Dr. Carolin Curtze's presentation is titled "What is Dynamic Balance?"
Carolin Curtze, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Biomechanics at UNO. She earned her PhD in Rehabilitation Medicine from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, exploring the neuromechanics of movement in lower limb amputees. Carolin completed her postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University, studying balance and gait impairments in people with Parkinsonâ€™s disease. Her overall research goal is to improve everyday functional mobility and prevent falls by investigating the pathophysiology of motor impairments and objectively characterizing them with new technologies.
