Research and Clinical Interests:
Dr. Page develops and tests therapies to increase function and independence after stroke and other neurologic diseases. He also applies various neuroimaging and molecular techniques to understand how, why, and in whom these approaches are most effective. He has held uninterrupted extramural funding to support this work for over a decade, and has produced many "firsts" in neurorehabilitation, developing and showing efficacy of mental practice, portable robotics, modified constraint-induced therapy, functional electrical stimulation, and several other innovative strategies in stroke. He has published over 100 peer reviewed publications, has delivered over 200 lectures nationally and internationally, and has served as guest issue editor for 12 special issues of journals since 2001, including The Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, The American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and The Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation. He has also organized and chaired 6 regional, national, and international neurorehabilitation conferences, including co-chairing the 2003 and 2004 international, joint meetings of the American Society of Neurorehabilitation/the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine as well as serving on the Board of Directors for these organizations. Dr. Page is Associate Editor of The American Journal of Occupational Therapy and is on the Editorial Board of ​The Occupational Therapy Journal of Research.He is also a fellow of both the American Heart Association and The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine; the only OT to hold both of these distinctions.Additionally, in 2013 Page was inducted as a member into the American Occupational Therapy Foundation's prestigious Academy of Research. 

Dr. Page has also provided > 100 of "lunch and learns" and inservices to community therapists, and volunteers for local and national organizations (e.g., National Stroke Association; American Stroke Association) and regularly presents CEU seminars to clinicians across the country, and webinars on a monthly basis. He has mentored over 50 medical, engineering, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy students, with most of these resulting in at least a peer-reviewed publication and/or presentation.

Dr. Page feels it is important for those in academic positions to continue to also be active clinicians; therefore, he also treats older adults and individuals with neurologic diagnoses locally.
