Serge H. Roy, ScD, PT, is a Research Professor at both the NeuroMuscular Research Center and the Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at Boston University. Dr. Roy received his entry-level degree in Physical Therapy from New York University, an MS degree in Physical Therapy and an ScD degree in Applied Anatomy and Kinesiology from Boston University Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Dr. Roy is the recipient of the Elizabeth C. Adams Award from N.Y.U. and two group achievement awards from NASA. He was elected a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and the International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK), where he also served as past President of ISEK. Dr. Roy is a co-founding author of The Rehabilitation Specialist's Handbook. His research activities are focused on developing EMG systems for assessing muscle impairments; automated monitoring of movement disorders; and studying the effects of aging, bedrest, and microgravity on motor unit function.
Steven L. Wolf, PhD, PT, FAPTA, FAHA, received his AB in Biology from Clark University, his physical therapy certificate from Columbia University, MS in Physical Therapy from Boston University, and his PhD in Neurophysiology from Emory University. He has defined the selection criteria for the application of EMG biofeedback to restore upper extremity function among chronic patients with stroke. These findings became the inclusion criteria for most constraint induced movement therapy stroke studies. He has served in multiple administrative and leadership capacities for the American Physical Therapy Association and for groups associated with the promotion of research and clinical service within neurorehabilitation. He is the recipient of the Marian Williams Award for Research Golden Pen Award, Georgia Merit Award, Physical Therapy Association of Georgia; Catherine Worthingham Fellowship; Robert C. Bartlett Recognition Award, Foundation for Physical Therapy; Distinguished Service Award, Section on Clinical Electrophysiology; Helen J. Hislop Award for Excellence in Contributions to Professional Literature; Lucy Blair Service Award; Section on Geriatrics outstanding published paper award; Neurology Section, Outstanding Researcher Award; Mary McMillan Lecturer. He has been a keynote speaker for many organizations, a commencement speaker for several institutions, and has served on several study sections and advisory boards for the NIH and other foundations.
David A. Scalzitti, PhD, PT, OCS received his entry-level degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and after several years of clinical practice returned to the UIC for a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology and a PhD in Disability Studies. Dr. Scalzitti has overseen the growth of the American Physical Therapy Association's Hooked on Evidence database and has contributed to a number of other initiatives related to evidence-based physical therapy practice. David is an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University and is a frequent invited speaker at a number of physical therapy education programs and national meetings. He has been a contributing author to two previous editions of the Rehabilitation Specialist's Handbook.
