Delsys Seminar with Dr. Ka-Chun (Joseph) Siu

Dr. Ka-Chun (Joseph) Siu, Associate Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy Education at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Director of the Clinical Movement Analysis Laboratory at UNMC visited Delsys on December 9th, 2016. Dr. Siu’s primary research area is in motor control and biomechanics, focusing on elderly population and patients with movement disorders. His second research area, that was presented at the seminar, focuses on motor learning in human performance. Dr. Siu described how EMG signals can be used as an objective outcome measure to study skills performance and learning pattern in laparoscopic or robotic minimally invasive surgery, and to detect differences before and after training and between novices and experts.
