      • Sensor-Equipped Glove Could Help Doctors Take Guesswork Out of Measuring Spasticity
        An interdisciplinary team of researchers at UC San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital has developed a sensor-equipped glove that could help doctors measure stiffness during physical exams. TDLC researcher Leanne Chukoskie is part of the team, and explains, "The multidisciplinary nature of our team is what makes this project so exciting and successful. Experts in signal processing, robotics, printable electronics, neurosciences and medicine came together to transform a subjective process into something that’s objective and could improve patient care and outcomes."
