- Dr. Teran-Yengle’s research focuses on the influence of gait biomechanics on the development of knee osteoarthritis. Her research interest is the investigation of the effectiveness of gait retraining on influencing the course of osteoarthritic changes in women with knee hyperextension. The projects associated with her work incorporate 3D motion analysis and off-site monitoring of knee kinematics to provide feedback and monitor outcomes. Dr. Teran-Yengle’s research has been presented at multiple national and international peer-reviewed conferences and in peer-reviewed publications.
