Research and Clinical Interests:
A licensed occupational therapist, 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.

Dr. Page has published over 90 peer reviewed publications, has delivered over 200 lectures nationally and internationally, and has served as guest issue editor for 10 special issues of journals since 2001. 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 and American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine as well as serving on the Board of Directors for these organizations.

Dr. Page has also provided dozens of "lunch and learns" and inservices to community therapists, and volunteers for local and national organizations (e.g., National Stroke Association; American Stroke Association) to develop informational products and seminars targeting clinicians and stroke survivors. He has mentored over 30 medical, engineering, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy students.

Dr. Page also treats older adults and individuals with neurologic diagnoses locally.
