Dr. Kerri Morgan, PhD, OTR/L ATP is a rehabilitation researcher. The focus of Dr. Morgan's research and clinical career has been to generate empirical knowledge helpful for guiding community-based and person-based interventions that improve the participation of people with lower limb mobility impairments (including but not limited to spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome and cerebral palsy). Her research focuses on disability, participation, physical activity and assistive technology. Dr. Morgan helped develop and test standardized measures that assess a person’s quality of participation in major life activities and the environmental facilitators and barriers impacting participation. In addition, she helped create a community-based program housed in a local Independent Living Center that provides services for people with disabilities (such as health and wellness programs and assistive technology assessment and training). She has also been involved in developing a motor-driven roller system (WheelMill System) to be used for wheelchair training and exercise for manual wheelchair users.
