Journal of Orthopaedic Research. 2012; 30:1405–1412Dr. Sandra Shultz is Professor and Chair in the Department of Kinesiology. Prior to her doctorate, she worked clinically for 12 years as associate director of Women’s TRACC Sports Medicine and associate director of athletic training and rehabilitation at UCLA (1991-1996). Her clinical experiences formed the foundation for her research interests, which focus on the sex-dependent factors that contribute to “high risk” knee biomechanics and ACL injury risk in women. Her primary line of research has characterized sex differences in knee laxity, and the consequences of greater magnitudes of knee laxity (both absolute and acute increases that occur during the female menstrual cycle and during exercise) on knee joint neuromechanics during sport related activity. She is currently exploring the genetic and anatomical factors (e.g. muscle mass) that precipitate high risk knee laxity profiles in an effort to develop effective intervention strategies to reduce or otherwise counteract the associated risk. This work has been supported by more than $1.6M in external funding from the National Institutes of Health, the NATA Foundation, and NFL Charities, and is the focus in 66 of her 104 peer-reviewed publications. Additionally she is primary author (1) or co-author (3) on 4 published consensus statements related to ACL injury risk and prevention in the female athlete. She has also chaired 14 PhD student dissertations and 19 MS student theses on ACL risk and prevention, with 6 of her PhD students receiving NATA foundation dissertation grants in the last 10 years. Her overarching goal is to determine the underlying factors that increase a female’s susceptibility for ACL injury, so that we can more effectively identify and address these factors in our ACL injury prevention strategies. Dr. Shultz is recipient of the 2014 Medal for Distinguished Athletic Training Research, the 2012 Sayer “Bud” Miller Distinguished Educator, the 2005 Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer, and the 2003 Freddie H Fu New Investigator awards from the National Athletic Trainers Association, and is a Fellow of the National Athletic Trainers' Association, the National Academy of Kinesiology and the American College of Sports Medicine.

Dr. Christopher K. Rhea is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He serves as the director of the Virtual Environment for Assessment and Rehabilitation Laboratory (VEAR Lab) and teaches courses in biomechanics, movement variability, and research methods. Dr. Rhea received his B.S. in Physical Education from the University of Central Missouri (2002), M.S. in Movement Science specializing in sports biomechanics from Barry University (2004) and Ph.D. in Motor Behavior specializing in biomechanics from Purdue University (2009). Prior to joining the UNCG faculty, Dr. Rhea was a Visiting Scholar at Brown University, while concurrently working as a Research Health Scientist at the Providence VA Medical Center (2008-2010). <p><p>

Dr. Rhea's primary research interest is the control of locomotion and balance. Dr. Rhea's research is separated into two themes; assessment and rehabilitation. In the assessment domain, Dr. Rhea's research team is exploring novel ways to quantify a person's functional mobility level. Clinical science is typically confined to subjective, course grained assessment of a patient's ability, making the accurate prescription of a rehabilitation program difficult. To this end, Dr. Rhea's research team is exploring how nonlinear dynamics can be used to index a patient's ability level. Furthermore, Dr. Rhea's team has utilized smartphone technology as an assessment tool by creating an Android-based app to identify neurological dysfunction from movement patterns.<p><p>

Once the patient's functional level has been identified, Dr. Rhea's research team develops novel rehabilitation practices using virtual reality (VR) technology. Dr. Rhea created the Rehabilitation Engagement Visualized In Virtual Environments (REVIVE) project (patent pending), which uses avatars and other virtual environments to assist in the re-development of a patient's walking ability. The REVIVE project is currently being tested with patients who have a reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and patients with chronic stroke. <p><p>

Dr. Rhea and colleagues have published their work in Medical Engineering and Physics, Gait & Posture, the Public Library of Science (PLoS ONE), Journal of Applied Biomechanics, Human Movement Science, Journal of Athletic Training and Sports Health, Experimental Brain Research, Journal of Athletic Training, Neuroscience Letters, Journal of Vision, and Ophthalmic and Pyhsiological Optics. He has given over 100 conference presentations to numerous societies, including the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society, American Society of Biomechanics, and the North American Society for Psychology in Sport and Physical Activity. His work is currently funded by the Department of Defense, US Navy, and the Women's Football Foundation.<p><p> - Rhea.pdf<ul>

This approach compares learning through motor imagery and physical practice while investigating if sensory feedback and knowledge of results will be of greater importance for setting parameters necessary for successful performance. Another area of interest is in Attentional focus, related to an individual's subjective perception of motivation, effort, and stress with respect to performance as stressors within the environment change.<br /><br /> In addition, Dr Raisbeck and her collaborators are interested in the effects of attentional focus instructions on functional balance in patients with peripheral neuropathy. Specific interest relates to the use of attentional focus strategies as an intervention for functional balance in patients with peripheral neuropathy.
