Learning Objectives:

Tamara Bushnik

Associate Professor
Rusk Rehabilitation - NYU Langone Hospitals

Tamara Bushnik, PhD, FACRM is an Associate Professor at Rusk Rehabilitation, NYU Langone Hospitals. Dr. Bushnik’s research interests lie in the area of community integration and independent living, approaching this research from a multidisciplinary perspective. Dr. Bushnik is the Project Director of the Rusk Rehabilitation Traumatic Brain Injury Model System of Care at NYU and was the Principal Investigator of the initial STEPS grant that established the collaborative longitudinal database for individuals with lower limb amputation. She has been a member of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) for over twelve years.

Jason Maikos

Director
New York Harbor Healthcare System

Dr. Jason Maikos is the Director of the VISN 2 Gait and Motion Analysis Laboratory at the Veterans Affairs New York Harbor Health Care System. He received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Rutgers, the State University where he gained expertise in biomechanics and computational modeling. Hi research at the VA allows him to explore the mechanics of human motion, specifically those living with limb loss, to understand how the biomechanics of this disability affects patients’ mobility, pain, overall health, and quality of life. His current research portfolio includes evaluating the efficacy of a advanced prosthetic devices, socket fit, novel treatment plans on gait biomechanics, performance, and pain. As a result of his well-rounded skill set, knowledge base, and gait analysis experience, Dr. Maikos bring an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach to solve clinically relevant challenges in the field of prosthetics.
