  • Wanted: Research Physical Therapist


    The Cleveland FES Center is seeking an experienced Physical Therapist to
    join a dynamic interdisciplinary team investigating new technical and
    surgical interventions to restore or enhance motor performance after SCI or
    stroke. The Physical Therapist will be primarily responsible for the
    hands-on application of new functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems
    and other cutting-edge prosthetic and orthotic devices for exercise,
    standing posture and balance, ambulation, and seated trunk control after
    paralysis. Duties include the clinical management of volunteers
    participating in various research projects and involve scheduling baseline
    assessments, conducting training and therapy sessions, and evaluating
    treatment outcomes. The Research PT will participate in pre-surgical
    planning, bodyweight supported treadmill training and robotic therapies,
    dynamometry and quantitative gait and posture analyses in our comprehensive
    motion study facility. Applicants should have a degree in PT, at least 3
    years experience in neuro- or SCI rehabilitation, a current license to
    practice in Ohio, and the ability to interact effectively with disabled
    consumers, rehabilitation engineers, other clinicians and researchers. The
    Cleveland FES Center is a consortium consisting of the Department of
    Veterans Affairs, Case Western Reserve University and MetroHealth Medical
    Center dedicated to developing new technologies and techniques to improve
    the independence and quality of life of individuals with disabilities.
