Human Movement and Rehabilitation
Our research addresses a series of important global health and social care trends that limit people’s mobility, their ability to live independently and are barriers to maximising their life experiences. This includes the global growth in those with arthritic joint disease (the leading cause of disability globally), and people with cardiovascular and neurological disease (with associated major health and societal costs and elevated mortality rates) and the associated serious complications (e.g. amputations).
Our activity focuses on rehabilitation and the movement sciences and clinical domains that underpin this. A wide range of research styles and disciplines are involved, from engineering and computational modelling through to health behaviour, social sciences and qualitative research.
