Gait Training Research for Stroke and Parkinson's disease

The Center for Biomedical Research in Neurobiological Rehabilitation is a joint venture between Poudre Valley Hospital and Colorado State University. The center is an international leader in neuroscience research in motor and cognitive rehabilitation.

This research has appeared in numerous publications, including Movement Disorders and the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry.

The gait-training program has also received research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the federal Administration on Aging, the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, and Kodak Colorado.

Neurologist Dr. Gerald McIntosh, Colorado State University music/engineering professor Michael Thaut, Ph.D., and PVH physical therapist Ruth Rice are the principal researchers.

In addition to research and training music therapists, the program offers exercise classes that use music and rhythm to help participants recover more fully.
