    Dr. Teyhen is an Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Physical Therapy Research in the U.S. Army-Baylor University Doctoral Program in Physical Therapy at Fort Sam Houston, TX. She also serves as a research consultant to the Spine Research Center and the Defense Spinal Cord and Column Injury Center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington D.C. and to the

    Military Performance Laboratory at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. Dr. Teyhen completed her PhD in Biomechanics from the University of Texas in 2004. She received a Master of Physical Therapy from the U.S. Army-Baylor University in 1995 and a Bachelor of Arts in Sports Science from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1993. Dr. Teyhens professional experience and training have been primarily in orthopaedic physical therapy. She is a board-certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, a certified Health Fitness Instructor from the American College of Sports Medicine, and a certified Health Promotion Director through the Cooper Institute. Dr. Teyhens research has focused on the development of imaging tools that can enhance rehabilitation of spinal and shoulder dysfunctions. She has been developing a novel approach to measure spinal and shoulder kinematics in those with lumbar and shoulder instability using digital fluoroscopic video technique. Furthermore, she has been clinically examining the ability to use real-time ultrasound imaging as a measurement and biofeedback tool to enhance the delivery of medical care to those with spinal pain since 1999. She has lectured extensively on the examination and treatment of patients with lumbar instability, therapeutic exercise, injury prevention, digital fluoroscopic video, and real-time ultrasound imaging. Dr. Teyhen serves as a manuscript reviewer for rehabilitative and biomechanical journals and is currently an Editorial Review Board Member of the 9^da]P[^U>acW^_PTSXRP]SB_^acb?WhbXRP[CWTaP_h


    3a 749 ETTVTa (1958), Department of Human Movement Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam & Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, section Biomedical Engineering, Delft University of Technology. After obtaining his masters in Human Movement Sciences in 1984, DirkJan Veeger continued his studies in London, where he obtained his MSc in Ergonomics from University College London. Since 1986,

    DirkJan Veeger has been affiliated to the Department of Human Movement Sciences, where he received his PhD in 1992 on Biomechanics of Wheelchair Propulsion. His main research interest lies in the field of musculoskeletal mechanics, and especially the upper extremity. Most profound research subject is the relationship between structure and function, which has been applied to the shoulder in wheelchair propulsion, the effect of surgical interventions such as tendon transfers on muscle function and ADL. Since 2000, Dr. Veeger also serves as Associate Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department of Delft University of Technology, where he is responsible for research in the area of shoulder biomechanics. Dr. Veeger is chair of the International Shoulder Group, a technical group of the International Society of Biomechanics and member of the editorial board of Clinical Biomechanics. Dr. Veeger has authored over 100 papers in SCI-indexed journals.
