Dr. Jousse Lecture Series
Welcome to the new Dr. Albin T Jousse Lecture Series in collaboration with Best Practice Forum, which is sponsored by the Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory, the Spinal Cord Rehab Program, the Neural Engineering and Therapeutics Team, and Toronto Rehab.
The purpose of this lecture series is to provide a venue for scientists, physicians and clinicians working in rehab settings as well as students, consumers and their caregivers to share knowledge, present the latest research findings and participate in a dialogue on what it means to live with disability. The lectures will be 45 minute long followed by 15 minutes of questions.
Coordinator of the Dr. Albin T. Jousse Lecture Series is Dr. Kristin Musselman . If you have any comments, concerns or would like to present please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The series is currently in its 11th season.

Matheus Joner Wiest – Traditional electrical stimulation is so 1700s: meet interleaved stimulation
November 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
About the Speaker
With a BSc in Physical Education and a MSc in Human Movement Sciences, Dr Wiest focused the initial phases of his career on understanding sports biomechanics and human postural control. During his PhD at the University of Alberta, his main focus moved towards improving the use of neuromuscular electrical stimulation for rehabilitation and training. His current research interests as a postdoctoral fellow at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute are related to:
1) Understanding and improving muscle-bone function and health after spinal cord injury, and
2) Improving the quality of rehabilitation care for people living with a spinal cord injury.
