Grant: Kai-Yu Ho and David Lee

Kai-Yu Ho (Physical Therapy) and David Lee (Life Sciences) received a Faculty Opportunity Award in the collaborative interdisciplinary research category for their study “Knee Pain, Tendon Degeneration, and Limb-Socket Dynamics in Trans-Tibial Amputees.” Their work seeks to understand how below-the-knee prosthetic sockets influence the transmission of loads and the deformation of tissues in the residual limb during walking, and then relate the parameters to patellar tendon morphology and clinical measures of knee joint function and pain.
