Avril Mansfield

Dr. Mansfield studies how aging and neurologic injury affect balance and mobility, and how to best measure balance and mobility in clinical practice. This work has led to her developing exercise-based interventions to improve independent mobility and prevent falls. She is also evaluating whether an education and self-management program can increase how much people exercise. Avril works closely with clinicians to make sure that these evidence-based interventions are implemented in clinical practice.
