Project Description

David Chapman, Associate Professor in the Physical Therapy - Doctorate program, received a $7,000 Faculty Research & Scholarly Activities Grant to examine the ability of 10 infants with spina bifida to move their legs and kick over four months when they are supine and seated. Leg movements and kicks are important to study because they strengthen the muscles and neural connections needed to walk.
