Research Interests

Dr. Rudolph's research interest is neuromuscular control of locomotion and in chronic pain. She studies people with joint instability in anterior cruciate ligament deficiency and knee osteoarthritis; people with hemiparesis post-stroke and older adults. She is also interested in developing new technologies for use in rehabilitation including muscle strengthening devices and rehabilitation robots for gait training.
