Dr. Musselman’s research aims to optimize the rehabilitation of walking and balance following damage to the nervous system in children and adults. She and her colleagues have developed novel assessment and training tools for individuals with spinal cord injury and children with cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Dr. Musselman also studies pediatric motor learning, and is interested in identifying optimal learning strategies for young children. Her current work is funded by the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation, the Physiotherapy Foundation of Canada, the Rick Hansen Institute and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
