Speaker Brief

 

 

SherriWallisDr. Sherri Wallis, PT, DPT

Sherri is a US-based physical therapist with over 30 years of experience in a variety of roles including clinical education, management, and treatment in various settings with a diverse patient population and diverse managerial supervision experience. She is experienced in CEU course presentation, educational development for both corporate programs and facility-based hospital staff.

Sherri joined the field of robotics with the intention of making a difference in methodology and implementation of therapy across the spectrum in order to maximize the therapeutic experience of both patients and therapists while assisting with bringing therapy into the 21st century. Sherri’s philosophy of treatment has always been “Use what works” and thus the use of robotics to achieve early mobility for clients who might not otherwise have a method for achieving functional activity seemed a good fit to assist with developing new and innovative ways to treat patients and achieve maximum therapy benefit.
