Dr. Bjornson

Dr. Bjornson's research is concerned with evidence-based clinical interventions to improve the activity and social participation of persons with cerebral palsy. A related interest is to develop a methodology to enable rigorous testing of the effectiveness of various current and emerging treatments (e.g., orthotics, physical activity/exercise, and physical therapy timing and frequency) on relevant outcomes (e.g., ambulatory and physical activity, participation in daily life).

Bjornson's current research focuses on treadmill training for ambulatory children with cerebral palsy and the influence of orthotics on biomechanics and community walking activity.
