Stephen Page, PhD, a licensed physical therapist, is leading a research project that uses smart phone technologies to track movement in stroke patients to determine their progress with rehabilitation. The approach relies on accelerometers, sensors in smart phones, video games and even air bags that detect motion. Page is an associate professor at the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus.
