Interests & Expertise

------------------------

Alyssa Schnorenberg’s interests include: biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering and motion analysis. Her current research focuses on pediatric mobility with assistive devices, examining the upper extremity joint demands of children with orthopaedic disabilities. Additionally she is investigating slips and falls during ladder climbing, examining contributing factors and the body’ response.
