Meet the Team!

We are Team ADEPT, a sophomore team working through the Gemstone Program at the University of Maryland, College Park. Even though we're only undergrads, we're dedicated to applying our creative thinking to improving the lives of physical therapy patients! While advancing the development of electromyography-based physical therapy, we hope to create a device that will encourage patients to become more involved in their recovery process, as well as allow therapists to track the off-site progress of patients more effectively.
