The main focus of Dr. Dukelow’s research involves understanding the mechanisms of stroke recovery and facilitating stroke rehabilitation through the use of technology. In particular, his lab is developing robotic assessment tools to accurately quantify sensorimotor dysfunction following stroke. They are currently focused on determining the importance of proprioception and vision in functional recovery. Additionally, they are developing novel robotic therapies for individuals with stroke.
Dr. Dukelow also serves as the Research Director for the Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation’s resident training program.
