Timothy W Lowe
Timothy Lowe is a Ph.D. candidate in the Movement & Cognitive Rehabilitation Science program. His research interests are in the area of neuromuscular control and lower limb biomechanics. His current study involves investigating the neuromuscular and biomechanics effects of prolonged muscle vibraiton.
My research focuses on neuromuscular and biomechanical contributors to musculoskeletal injury and disease, and how to leverage this information to alleviate long-term impairment and enhance quality of life. The goal of my current investigation is to identify a novel treatment strategy to improve quadriceps
and knee joint function and prevent, or delay, osteoarthritis in those who have sustained anterior
cruciate ligament reconstruction.
