About Dr. Robert S. Gailey:

 
Robert S. Gailey, PhD, PT (Professor) has been at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy for 30 years.   He also has a joint appointment as a Health Science Researcher with Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center and is the Director of the Functional Outcomes Research & Evaluation Center. His doctorate in prosthetics and orthotics was received from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland where he developed the Amputee Mobility Predictor an objective measure of amputee function and most recently developed the Comprehensive High-Activity Mobility Predictor.  He has authored over 50 publications and has continued research efforts directed toward: amputee rehabilitation, the biomechanics and metabolic cost of prosthetic gait, functional assessment and athletic pursuits of the amputee as well as other athletes with disabilities across the life span. He was the recipient of the ISPO’s 1995 Forcheimer Prize for Research, the Amputee Coalition of America’s 2003 Dr. Ernest Burgess Award and recently the American Physical Therapy’s 2009 Henry O. Florence & P. Kendall Practice Award recipient. Honorary member of AAOP. Most recently, he has been working extensively with Project Medishare in providing rehabilitation and prosthetic care to people of Haiti injured in the recent earthquake.

The following is a partial list of the professional and volunteering contributions he has made over the past three decades.
