Avril Mansfield, PhD, RKin

Dr. Mansfield's research focuses on understanding balance and mobility challenges of individuals with stroke and physical rehabilitation to help them overcome these challenges. She is particularly interested in understanding how we acquire and re-learn " involuntary" balance motor skills and how to apply technology (e.g. accelerometers and force plates) to assess and treat in clinical practice.
