DR. DAVID F. COLLINS, UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA
Dr. Collins is a Professor in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation and is a member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta. His research focuses on minimising contraction fatigue during functional electrical stimulation (FES). He and his team are developing ways to incorporate physiological principles of motor unit recruitment that help reduce fatigability of voluntary contractions (Henneman’s size principle, physiological discharge rates), into the way FES generates contractions. The goal of this work is to maximise the benefits of FES-based programs.
