CBI Faculty Spotlight
Anne D. Kloos, PT, PhD, NCS
I am a Professor of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences in the physical therapy division. I teach doctor of physical therapy students in our neurologic and geriatric curriculum. In addition I provide physical therapy consultation in the Huntington's Disease Center of Excellence. I work closely with Dr. Sandra Kostyk in her clinic.
What do you study, and why?
I am a co-PI in the Mobility and Exercise for Neurodegenerative Diseases (MEND) laboratory along with Anne Kloos and Sandra Kostyk. We study mobility and balance in individuals with neurodegenerative diseases and older adults. Finding accurate and sensitive measures to assess balance and fall risk has long been a focus in our lab. In addition we explore optimal ways to provide exercise interventions to improve mobility, balance, and prevent falls for individuals who face barriers to adopting exercise. Our more recent studies examine the use of online delivery of a dance based exercise program called “Move to Improve”.
What should people know about your research?
Our research is clinically focused with a goal of finding ways to meet the needs of our patients
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I love to kayak, hike and I am an avid knitter.
